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 Manufacturing Production Technician pathway is a two (2) year; four (4) semester CTE program that engages students in open-ended problem solving where they learn and apply manufacturing processes and use modern, industry-leading technology and software. The program prepares students for further education and careers in manufacturing production. The CTE program consists of four courses that are completed on the campus of the Delaware Technical Community College.
