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 Hospitality & Tourism Management pathway is designed to prepare students for employment in the hospitality industry. Students explore management and technical skills needed for success and practice industry-specific skills that can be used in all aspects of the hospitality and tourism industry. Students also acquire employability skills such as leadership, guest services, accountability, teamwork, and responsibility.
The program prepares students for careers such as front office supervisor, front desk associate, director of tourism, and general manager.
