In order to determine high skill, high demand industries for career pathway development, DPI partners with the Department of Workforce Development to identify career clusters/industry sectors that meet the definition. Taking the most current 10-year projections, job classifications are identified by greater-than-average growth. These are then crosswalked to CTE career clusters and examined for educational levels required to obtain these jobs in a cluster. Clusters are prioritized if they have demand at multiple education and skill levels.
