Career Clusters

 Career Clusters Banner

 

 

 The 16 Career Clusters were validated through a national effort managed by Advanced CTE.

Defining the Career Clusters:

  • A Career Cluster is a grouping of occupations and broad industries based on commonalities.
  • Expectations at the Career Cluster level represent the skills and knowledge, both academic and technical, that all students within the Career Cluster should achieve regardless of their pathway.
  • Expectations at the pathway level represent the skills and knowledge, both academic and technical, necessary to pursue a full range of career opportunities within a pathway— ranging from entry level to management, including technical and professional career specialties. 

Beginning in 2015, Advance CTE’s annual Career Cluster Institute was joined with ACTE’s CareerTech VISION following a 12-year run as an independent event.
