Career Pathways connect people with disabilities to the education, training, and industry-recognized credentials needed to qualify for high-demand jobs. This webinar explores themes and lessons learned over five years through the Career Pathways for Individuals with Disabilities (CPID) grant.
This project included participants across 4 states including Georgia, Kentucky, Nebraska, and Virginia. All four of these CPID projects worked to understand the Career Pathways model used by workforce and education partners. They then translated and put into action what CPID could look like and mean for state VR agencies and individuals with disabilities.
In this webinar, each state shares what they’ve learned about how the Career Pathways approach enhanced their workforce partnerships and employer engagement. They describe how using a sector approach helped promote this type of engagement. Each state shares career pathways exploration tools that are helpful for students and adults with disabilities and materials and toolkits created.
