• C4 Career Pathways

    Career Pathways

     

    Career Pathways are broad groupings of careers that share similar characteristics and whose employment requirements call for many common interests, strengths and competencies. The desired outcomes of Career Preparation are student achievement and ultimate success in a career(s) of choice. Meeting the career-related needs of students calls for alignment with career opportunities in authentic work settings. Career Pathways provide a useful framework to aid both students and educators in making those meaningful connections to the working world. C4 is creating and publishing Career Pathway Documents within its 10 designated Career Majors. 

     

    C4 Pathway Documents were developed through a collaboration of C4  staff/instructors, post secondary instructors, local industry and community members.  The process, though lengthy, has proven to be very valuable to students and parents when they are researching career and post secondary options.

     

    Two formats are used in the publishing of these documents.  Each of the C4 Career Majors published documents which lead the student who is exploring career options toward a secondary course of study that will prepare the student to enter a number of post secondary options which are available in the state of Indiana or with schools that hold dual credit/articulation agreements with C4.  The second career pathway publication is designed for the student who has decided on a career choice.  This pathway is one that is written between C4 and one post secondary institution where a dual credit or articulation agreement is in place.  With this document, the student will see a secondary listing of proposed courses to prepare him or her for post secondary studies and also will find a four semester listing of the courses needed while enrolled in the post secondary institution
