The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (DOLETA) is excited to release the Career Pathways Toolkit: An Enhanced Guide and Workbook for System Development. The new Toolkit will be especially helpful for State offices and partners required to develop a Unified Plan as well as staff members supporting State Workforce Development Boards.

DOLETA revised the Career Pathways Toolkit to align with the new vision, definition, and requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). It also reflects major advancements and emerging promising practices in the field over the past five years.

The enhanced Toolkit features the Six Key Elements of Career Pathways. Each element now includes embedded – and writeable – worksheets to help State and local teams with implementation. Users can type directly into the worksheet fields and save and print as they go along. 

Benefits and Uses: 

Under WIOA, which was signed into law in July 2014, States and localities collaborate with adult education, postsecondary education and other partners to establish career pathways systems to make it easier for all Americans to attain necessary skills and credentials to secure meaningful jobs in their regional economies. The Career Pathways Toolkit will help stakeholders develop more comprehensive and combined systems for workforce development.
