Career Pathways: Exploring the Partnership Pipeline

Scott Ralls, Ph.D., President, Northern Virginia Community College (VA)

On May 10, 2016, the Senate Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, in conjunction with the Alliance for Excellent Education will hold a briefing on the partnerships that are essential to transform the high school experience to ensure that all students are thoroughly prepared for both college and career upon graduation. Although the nation currently graduates 82 percent of all high school students, far too many students remain unprepared for postsecondary education and the workforce. Therefore, discussions about increasing relevancy and rigor in the nation’s schools can no longer forsake the role of career and technical education (CTE) and the necessity of the partners that guide that work.

During the briefing, panelists will discuss

  • the latest findings on the postsecondary and economic outcomes of students who participate in career pathways;
  • the role of the K-12/community college partnership that provides for dual enrollment and articulated pathways;
  • the role of business and industry in supporting career pathways;
  • the role of the intermediary in driving and sustaining local and regional implementation; and
  • how current federal investments in career and technical education are being used to support this work.

Panelists will also address questions from the audience.
