Career Pathways Program


Overview:

The Career Pathway Program will provide students the opportunity to determine their skills and career interests through an assessment to identify a career pathway of interest offered at the Delaware Skills Center. A training compatibility determination is made through providing extensive labor market information relative to each training program in combination with the career assessment results and interest.

Students will also participate within workshops regarding financial literacy, entrepreneurship, career readiness in addition to academic enrichment classes in order to ensure a student’s success within the occupational skills training class. GED® preparation is offered to those students who lack a high school diploma. Upon completion of the training students will have obtained a State or Nationally recognized credential within the specific area of training and will be ready to pursue entry level work leading to a life sustaining wage.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
