Career Pathways, Workplace Learning & Apprenticeships
Stamford Public Schools is engaged with the State of Connecticut and the National Center for College and Career Transitions (NC3T) in developing a Pathway System over the course of several years. A Pathway System is the coordinated interaction of key components – career development, pathway programs, dynamic teaching and learning, employer and community engagement, and cross-sector partnerships- designed to develop a high level of career and life readiness among youths and in schools, colleges, workforce programs and across the broader community, resulting in enhanced workforce competitiveness and community prosperity.
An integral part of the Pathway System is to engage all students in Career Connected Learning. Career Connected Learning helps students connect learning to the real world and develop the knowledge, skills, and mindset to successfully enter the adult world of work, careers, and community life.
