Project | Career Pathways Master Plan
Goal 7 Career Pathway
By April 30, 2017, produce a summary report and recommendations, developed by tri-county stakeholders, that serves as a regional masterplan for career pathways and provides shared tools to support increased collaboration, pathway planning and talent development.
ENGAGE NATIONAL CONSULTANT: With Lumina Foundation grant funds, contract CAEL (Council for Adult & Experiential Learning) to connect our tri-county region with national best practices.

SURVEY: Survey results of stakeholders to identify pathway principles, features and priorities.
GUIDING PRINCIPLES: A description of guiding principles and high impact features generated by the team.
SAMPLE BEST PRACTICES: Information, examples and stories of national best practices that address challenges and populations similar to those in our tri-county region.
CROSS-WALK: Examples of cross-sector mapping relevant to our population and industries where individuals from one industry migrate to a role in another industry with more upward mobility, based on similar skill sets.
INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEWS: A report of findings in one-on-one interviews with individual stakeholders for each, existing career pathway (Note: This was added to the project scope mid-way, extending the original time table by 90 days).
DEFINITION: A shared definition of what constitutes a career pathway
INVENTORY: An inventory of existing career pathways in the tri-county region and their main component parts, including both academic and social supports.
INFO GRAPHIC: A standard info graphic to depict career pathways that can be used in shared websites and print materials.
