Toolkit, video help Ohio students discover career pathways


Today Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted launched a new resource that provides information to students, parents and teachers about the different career pathways available to high schoolers. The “Find Your Career Pathway” video and toolkit aim to guide students in their educational journeys to land successful careers in Ohio. 

The resource encourages Ohio students, parents and schools to start conversations early about the best pathway to a successful career in Ohio. 

The video features five students from around the state sharing their experiences in each pathway. The highlighted pathways include:

  • Career-Technical Education, which provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners.
  • Pre-Apprenticeships, which teach 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, which 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, which allow students to gain knowledge and skills through hands-on learning in a specific job or industry.

In addition to the video, an accompanying toolkit was developed to share supplemental information on the various pathways and other resources that can help students and families learn more.
