Career Pathways and Your Company

Authentic workplace experiences have always been of great value to youth and young adults and all can benefit from activities such as Job Shadowing, Career Mentorship, Internships, and Workplace Tours, especially when combined with classroom training, support services, and other career-readiness activities. With the New York City’s new Career Pathways framework and the passing of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), there are new expectations, requirements and resources for many youth programs. Partnerships with employers are critical if education and training systems are to effectively contribute to the city’s talent pipeline. *

* In November of 2014, Career Pathways: One City Working Together was released by the New York City Office of Workforce Development. This report declared the City’s commitment to moving away from a “Rapid Attachment” model to a “Career Pathways” framework. Career Pathways assists individuals in taking the steps needed in education, training and employment to achieve self-sufficiency. This requires a goal and a plan. The report recommends increased funding for training and bridge programs that expand industry partnerships and improve job quality. Having gone into effect in New York City as of July 1, 2015, WIOA includes a Career Pathways approach and incorporates a great deal of changes and adjustments for youth program providers. Program design, funding levels and outcome measurement – including follow-up, are among the areas impacted. There is also an increased emphasis on industry and interagency partnerships as well as the promotion of sector-based strategies. As a result, education, training and workplace experiences are more integrated in a single pathways approach. Career Pathways and WIOA are already having an impact on the workforce development field. There is more emphasis on helping young people plan for their career, not just that first job. Work-Based Learning can serve as an important element in this new paradigm.
