- What does a Career Pathway mean? Career pathways are a series of connected education, training, and support strategies aimed at helping students achieve their own definition of success. Providing career pathways for students means that education and training align with the needs of the local job market, provide a range of secondary and postsecondary options, result in a secondary high school diploma, and help students enter or advance within an occupation. Within the CTEERS business structure, a Career Pathway is defined as one of the nationally adopted 16 career clusters.
What if a student concentrates in more than one Career Pathway Type? If a student concentrates in more than one Career Pathway Type, submit only the Primary Concentration. Only one student CTE Program Association will be submitted to WISEdata, and details for the Primary Concentration will be used in reporting.
CTE Concentrator Program Submission: A CTE concentrator is submitted by sending in a Program Type and Program Name of Career and Technical Education and the elements that go along with it (IAC Code Type, Career Pathway Type (Cluster) and Program Areas Type).
