Career Pathways Initiative

Federal, state, and local legislation or administrative policies promote career pathway development and implementation.

Local and state partners identify key policy and program changes and actions necessary to implement the goals and vision of the career pathways initiative. Partners actively coordinate efforts across the region and/or state and establish formal procedures to institutionalize system change. Agencies and programs collaborate to provide professional development across organizations and systems. Measures are used to assess and determine system change and performance (including policy changes for system-wide change).

  • How does the Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) promote the development of career pathways?
  • Do your One Stop and TANF service providers coordinate with one another in service provision? If not, what needs to change?
  • What funds can be used to fund curriculum and professional development to support a career pathways approach?
  • How can state and policymakers support the development of portable and stackable credentials?
