State Policy > Career Pathways

Career pathway initiatives allow low-skilled youth and adults to combine work and education while obtaining in-demand postsecondary credentials.

State policies that support career pathway strategies make it easier to align adult basic education, job training, postsecondary education and support services. For example, these policies can make it easier to provide basic skills education in the context of occupational training, to move educationally underprepared students more successfully to certificate or degree completion. Or these policies can provide tuition assistance to working students enrolled part-time or in non-credit occupationally focused programs.
