Career pathways span secondary and postsecondary education, align to employer needs and careers, and provide high-quality education, training, and support services for youth and adults.
In Delaware, career pathways begin in the public education system (K-12) through Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways offered in charter, comprehensive, and technical school districts. These pathways continue through adult education, occupational training programs, and postsecondary programs that are administered by partnering state agencies, institutions of higher education, and other service providers.
The Cisco Networking Academy program of study is a six (6) course CTE program that blends the content and experiences of computer networking and computer science to help students develop a well-rounded and adaptable skill base. The program prepares students for continuing education and careers in computer networking and computer science, as well as those that may require skills in both fields.
