This notice from DOLETA announces the availability of technical assistance resources for states, local areas, and tribal entities developing Career Pathway systems. As part of the Department of Labor’s focus on increasing credential attainment and improving access to training opportunities for disadvantaged populations, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) launched the Career Pathways Initiative in June 2010. This initiative offered 11 grantees (nine states and two tribal entities) training, peer to peer learning and the latest research and best practices to help create well articulated and sustainable career pathway systems. The initiative also produced a diverse collection of resources and materials for the broader workforce investment system to use in creating successful career pathways initiatives.

The Career Pathways Toolkit: Six Key Elements for Success was developed as part of the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration’s Career Pathways Initiative to help guide state and local leaders in building and sustaining career pathway systems. This Toolkit offers a clear and user-friendly road map for administrators, service providers, practitioners, and policy makers seeking to develop career pathway systems at local, regional, and/or state levels. It details the Six Key Elements Framework, highlights promising practices, and provides tools designed to support visioning and strategic planning.
