DOLETA revised the Career Pathways Toolkit to align with the new vision, definition, and requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). It also reflects major advancements and emerging promising practices in the field over the past five years.
The enhanced Toolkit features the Six Key Elements of Career Pathways. Each element now includes embedded – and writeable – worksheets to help State and local teams to use in develop career pathway systems. Users can type directly into the worksheet fields and save and print as they go along.
Under WIOA, which was signed into law in July 2014, States and localities collaborate with adult education, postsecondary education and other partners to establish career pathways systems to make it easier for all Americans to attain necessary skills and credentials to secure meaningful jobs in their regional economies. The Career Pathways Toolkit will help stakeholders develop more comprehensive and aligned? or integrated? systems for workforce development.For more information on Career Pathways, visit https://careerpathways.workforcegps.org.
