  4. 4. Career Clusters Terminology Career and Technical Education: Organized educational activities that offer a sequence of courses that provides individuals with coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in current or emerging professions, provides technical skill proficiency, an industry-recognized credential, a certificate, or an associate degree, may include prerequisite courses (other than remedial courses) that meet other requirements; and include competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of an industry, including entrepreneurship of an individual. [Section3(5)] Perkins Act of 2006: The Official Guide Career Clusters: Kansas identifies 16 Career Clusters. These are occupations that are organized around common knowledge and skills that have common characteristics and job duties. The 16 Career Clusters are: Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources; Arts, A/V Technology, and Communications; Information Technology; Architecture and Construction; Manufacturing; Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); Health Science; Government and Public Administration; Education and Training; Human Services; Law, Public Safety, and Security; Business Management and Administration; Finance; Marketing; and Hospitality and Tourism. Career Fields: Occupations that are organized around broad, common knowledge and skills. The six Career Fields are: Environment and Agricultural Systems; Arts, Communication, and Information; Industrial, Manufacturing, and Engineering Systems; Health Science; Human Resources and Services; and Business, Marketing, and Management. Career Pathways: Kansas identifies 79 Pathways. Pathways are organized around more specific knowledge and skills and are based on a grouping of occupations. These are exactly what they sound like: a Pathway leading from education to career. The Pathway identifies each step, skill, education requirement and aptitude needed to be successful within any specific career. A Pathway is made up of a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic & career related courses. Foundation Knowledge & Skills: Academic and technical skills that are the foundation for any career a 21st Century learner may pursue. The Foundation Knowledge & Skills are: Employability, Ethics, Systems, Teamwork, Career Development, Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, Information Technology Applications, Legal Responsibilities, Communication, and Safety, Health & Environment. Personal Plan of Study: A Personal Plan of Study is individualized for each student. It is a concentrated effort to explore career opportunities to aid a student in making insightful and purposeful decisions about career goals. It is designed to contain student assessments that reflect his/her abilities, personal interests, and both academic strengths and weaknesses. It should: 1) state the students’ career goals and intended postsecondary training; 2) contain a comprehensive 6 year educational plan based on the Kansas Career Clusters Model and Programs of Study, grades 8-14; and 3) include any other information that will assist the student in preparing a resume. Program of Study: A program of study is a comprehensive educational plan that includes all required academic courses, and electives that will enhance or complement a career interest area (Career Cluster). Also included are appropriate career and technical education (CTE) courses, work-based learning options and transition plans for after high school, potentially including two- and four-year institutions, apprenticeships, employer-based training, and lifelong learning.
  5. 5. Labor Market Information (LMI) Definitions Pathways available for state approval at the secondary-level must meet the following criteria: Lead to high demand and high skill careers with postsecondary connections and/or industry credentials/certifications or Lead to high demand and high wage careers with postsecondary connections and/or industry credentials/certifications High Demand: An occupation that: Has a critical shortage of workers to fill the employment demands of industry, and Requires formal training exceeding that which can be provided on the job. High Skill: An occupation that requires all of the following: Specialized technical training, An advanced level of skill sets as defined by each industry and/or education (Examples: independent decision making, critical thinking, problem solving), A recognized validation of skill attainment or credential (Examples: certification, registration, licensure), and Includes mandatory continuing education and/or training. High Wage: An occupation that: Has a median wage for the occupation that is at least 200% above federal poverty level for a specific area/region or an entry wage of $13.75 or higher, and Offers a wage progression strategy. Wage & Employment Information is available at www.ksde.org on the Academic & Technical Education page for each of the Pathways in the Kansas Career Fields & Clusters Model. These documents should be used as a starting point for review and consideration when determining if a Pathway leads to high demand, high skill or high wage occupations.
