Welcome to Career Pathways
The Career Pathways program is a guide for students to help them determine the best educational pathway to best attain their future career goals. Middle school students have already begun the Career Pathways program within their classrooms. They receive a Middle School planner and are offered tours of Lehigh Career & Technical Institute. They also have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of careers through guest speakers and assemblies.
Once a student narrows down their field of interest, Career Pathways helps them decide which one of the four "Career Clusters" best suits their needs. The 4 clusters are...Arts & Humanities, Business & Communication, Engineering & Industrial Technology, and Health & Human Services.
Career Pathways is designed in three levels to better guide students in making a career choice. As part of the first level, the Middle School Planner is completed within the classroom. The planner helps the student learn more about themselves and the possible career paths that interest them. The second level helps students explore their interests and begins to guide them to an appropriate career cluster. The final level re-examines the student's interests and narrows down a definitive pathway to their chosen career.
