Career/Technical Education: Career Clusters the State Has Identified

"Career clusters" are an organizational tool that educators can use to link education with business and industry. The U.S. Department of Education has adopted 16 clusters as a first step in helping students explore several career options within a field of interest. The 16 clusters take into account both educational and labor market needs. Each cluster covers industry sectors and expands outward to a number of "career pathways." The 16 clusters adopted by the U.S. Department of Education are used by educators to build plans of study for 81 career pathways. For example, the cluster of "Business, Marketing and Management" can easily be expanded from one cluster to at least three pathways. Each of the three pathways branches out to more specific paths. Once the educator and student settle on a pathway, they can look at a number of programs of study to develop the core academic, technical and employability skills of the student. Each choice should provide a stream of continuous education and training moving the student to fulfilling, high-demand, high-opportunity careers. Many states have considered state employment needs and student interest in selecting the "career clusters" currently available, and plan to add others at a later date. Twenty-three states have adopted the 16 federal career clusters. Five states have identified six career pathways that contain the 16 career clusters.

Why does it matter?

  • Using the career clusters represents a state focus on strengthening career and technical education.
  • Following a well-defined career pathway allows students and educators to drill deeply into the skills and knowledge that could form the basis of a future career in a high-skill, high-wage field.
  • Broadening alternative pathways from limited choices (e.g., auto mechanics and cosmetology) to broader categories (e.g., law, health sciences, and STEM) creates greater educational opportunities and increased academic rigor.
  • Methodology: This information was collected from state statutes, rules and regulations, and will be updated as new policies are enacted.
