This is the final report providing an overview of activities facilitated by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office’s two statewide K-14 Technical Assistance Providers (TAPs), “key talent,” for Career Pathways Design from 2015-2017. This report describes areas of focus and ground-level work with practitioners in 11 regions statewide, and provides recommendations for future work to better connect stakeholders and further the positive impact of career technical education (CTE) programs on California’s economy. The TAPs supported legislative priorities to train a 21st Century workforce, and advocated for policy shifts and stronger connections to industry to strengthen how CTE is delivered through the California Department of Education (CDE) and California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (Chancellor’s Office).
When the RFA for the Career Pathways Design grant was released, the Technical Assistance Providers were enlisted to focus on five key objectives designed to document and share experiences among CTE programs throughout the state. The recommendations included at the end of this report are designed to help policymakers and practitioners think in new ways about improving coordination, reporting, and pooling of resources to enhance students’ workforce preparation at K-12 schools and community colleges.
