State celebrates In-Demand Jobs Week with 'Find Your Career Pathway' campaign
On Monday, May 1, Lt. Governor Jon Husted unveiled a video and toolkit for Ohio students and parents, highlighting different career pathway options that lead to a great paying career in Ohio.
"Find Your Career Pathway” aims to inspire high school students and educate them on the many learning and training opportunities available right here in Ohio. The highlighted pathways include:
Career Technical Education - provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge, and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners.
Pre-Apprenticeships - teaches entry level technical and job-readiness skills for an apprentice occupation to prepare students for a formal Registered Apprenticeship training program upon graduation.
College Credit Plus - helps students earn college and high school credits simultaneously by taking college courses from local colleges or universities while in high school.
Industry-Recognized Credentials - demonstrates the knowledge and skills students gain through hands-on learning in a specific job or industry.
Not every student thrives in the same learning environment, so it is important to encourage students to do things they are good at and enjoy doing. Our goal is to provide supports to help students, families, and schools start these conversations early so Ohio’s students know all about their options.
