Career Pathways Questions
Hello Career Pathways and Program Management group colleagues,
I have been thinking about career pathways, and have a number of questions that I could use your help in answering. Most of my questions don’t have “right” answers, but rather are trying to get at a picture of what is happening in career pathways implementation in programs across the U.S. I plan to post one or two questions a week in this discussion thread for several weeks. If you have questions that you would like to add to the discussion thread, please do. I hope that you and many other members of the Career Pathways and Program Management groups will respond to these questions. Many of us here are eager to learn from your experience. Here's my first question:
- What career pathways practices are working well, and for what populations and levels of students? For example, what career pathways practices work well for ABE students, ESL/ESOL/students, community college students who are in credit-bearing courses, or workplace basic skills or English language learning classes? Although I would be interested in research that addresses this question, I am especially interested in on-the-ground descriptions based on practitioners' experiences in implementing career pathways in their adult basic skills or community college programs.
Thanks for your reply.
