In Utah, our challenge is to provide opportunities for every student to succeed in the 21st century workplace. Providing these opportunities requires that programs keep pace with a rapidly changing business and economic environment. Our high school students must have a strong academic education, obtain Career and Technical Education skills, and be prepared to transition to some postsecondary education.
UTAH’S PATHWAY INITIATIVE – WHAT ARE CAREER PATHWAYS?
The High School to College and Career Pathways initiative helps match education and workplace needs. Through partnerships with post-secondary institutions, the school districts, business, and industry, Pathways identify and group courses within Career and Technical Education (CTE) areas of study that offer students depth of knowledge and skill, linked with specific post-secondary programs culminating in degrees or certificates.
