Wisconsin Career Pathways are the core of workforce and economic development in our state by providing a framework for seamless education. The career pathways connect education to workforce/ economic development with a focus on high skill, high demand, and high wage careers. They also ensure a seamless transition for students from high school to college.
Career Clusters and Pathways are groupings and sub-groupings of occupations or career specialties with similar knowledge and skill sets used as an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction. A program of study is a sequence of instruction along a particular pathway consisting of coursework, co-curricular activities, work-site learning, service learning and other learning experiences. This sequence of instruction provides preparation for a career.
Of all programs of study at local schools across the state Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR) has the most completed through Wisconsin Agricultural Education. In fact, at the time of this publication there were 60 percent more programs of study completed for the AFNR cluster (164 total) than the next in line, the Finance cluster with 100 completed.
