Career Pathway Leadership Workshops

SREB works with states, districts and regional consortia to conduct career pathway leadership workshops that engage postsecondary and business partners with school and district leaders in reviewing current CTE program offerings and determining how to better prepare students for emerging jobs in the state, region or community.

The Pathway Leadership Workshop Process

States and districts frequently ask to convene a career pathway leadership workshop after completing a career pathway review or a curriculum and instruction review.

These workshops help high schools, technology centers and postsecondary partners determine how they can better leverage their resources to design and implement CTE programs that jump-start postsecondary credential and degree attainment and career advancement.

SREB brings leaders from secondary and postsecondary education, industry and workforce development together to identify actions that enrich the senior-year experience and empower students to take advantage of career pathway options while also completing graduation requirements.

Workshops engage education leaders and their industry partners in establishing a common understanding of high-quality, Perkins-funded programs of study and career pathways.

They also provide states and districts with tools and resources for developing strategic plans to realign their programs with emerging careers, retire programs that no longer meet labor market needs, and develop new pathways in high-wage, high-skill, high-demand career fields.
