The Promise of Career Pathways Systems Change and Inititatives, commissioned by ETA and released in April 2012, provides an overview of career pathways, the six key elements framework and examples of state and local workforce investment systems that are centrally involved in the development of career pathways.
The Six Key Elements Readiness Assessment Tool was developed to assist states and local areas in forming and implementing their career pathways initiative at the local and state levels. This tool will help teams assess their state or local area's career pathways initiative by looking at progress, priorities, gaps, technical assistance needs, and next steps.
This document gives you an overview of the suite of tools and resources developed to help build career pathways. Most of the tools and resources were developed and used by grantee teams during the 2010 Career Pathways Initiative.
The Employment and Training Administration, the Office of Vocational and Adult Education, and the Administration of Children and Families issued a joint letter of support for career pathways in April 2012 In the letter, they approved this definition and framework for career pathways.
