The RCCPC provides information, leadership, technical assistance, networking opportunities and professional development for Career Pathways and CTE practitioners interested in the academic and career success of secondary to post-secondary students. The RCCPC supports active participation of our practitioners with local, state and national career pathways associations and professional development opportunities, including the Florida Career Pathways Network, the National Career Pathways Network, the Florida Association for Career and Technical Education, the Association for Career and Technical Education, and the Institute for the Professional Development of Adult Learners.
Strong collaboration between education, employers, and community partners are essential to creating high-quality Career Pathways/CTE programs of study. Through RCCPC efforts, academic, career and technical content can be made more relevant, rigorous and better aligned with the skills demanded by the labor market. Students can obtain college credit for coursework completed in high school, apprenticeships, or industry-based training through local articulation agreements. The partnerships, including that with the Boys and Girls Club of St. Lucie County, underscore the commitment and support of establishing career pathway oriented curriculum within local secondary, post-secondary and community organizations.
