Edgenuity has announced a new offering of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses designed to prepare students for job readiness in the 21st century. A multi-year progression divided into three phases – Explorations, Career Planning and Life Skills, and Pathwaysleads students from identifying their career interests in middle school to planning for professional certification in high school. The suite of instructional and elective blended learning offerings are also aligned to iNACOL standards.

Video segments featuring real teachers and industry experts guide students through concepts and skills with visual support, dispersing instructional content through interactive tasks, vocabulary-building tools and project-based assessments.

  • Explorations, designed for students in grades 6-9, features the new Career Explorations course along with a suite of electives. Hands-on, project-based learning is coupled with interest and skill assessments, exposing students to pathways, qualifications, education, and training associated with all 16 U.S. Department of Labor Career Clusters™.
  • Career Planning and Life Skills, designed for students in grades 7-10, offers courses to help build digital citizenship, personal wellness, study skills, employability skills and business literacy.
  • Pathways offers in-depth engagement with specific careers and professional training. Foundation classes introduce students to Information Technology, Health Science, and Business. Students go on to complete the pathways when they elect to take the occupational specialization courses and prepare to test for industry credentials as a Medical Coder, Nurse Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, A+ Certified Help Technician or Microsoft Office Specialist.
