U.S. Department of Education Launches Phase II of Advancing Career and Technical Education in State and Local Career Pathways Systems

The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Vocational and Adult Education selected five states— Colorado, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Oregon— to participate in the first phase of its Advancing Career and Technical Education (CTE) in State and Local Career Pathways Systems, a two-year project managed by Jobs for the Future through a contract with OVAE.

Technical assistance was provided to assist these states in building their capacity to integrate CTE Programs of Study (POS) into their broader career pathways system development efforts. Participating states were assigned a coach and had subject matter experts available to help them develop and implement their action plan and achieve their goals. 

In September 2013, OVAE launched its second phase of the project to select three additional states, with the purpose of developing comprehensive Career Pathways Systems that extend from secondary school through postsecondary education and training programs in the field of transportation.  The U.S. Department of Transportation has joined with OVAE to launch this next phase of the project. 


This project is led by Mary Clagett, Director for Workforce Policy at Jobs for the Future, (mclagett@jff.org or 202-709-5330, ext. 406).  For more information on the application, go to http://cte.ed.gov/nationalinitiatives/advancing_cte.cfm
