Career Pathways Roadmap Portfolio


What is a roadmap?

  • Roadmaps are user-friendly, visual representations of the interaction between educational programs, and labor market information that assist students with their career and educational decision-making.
  • Roadmaps are "jointly produced by educators, workforce development professionals, and employers, [and] show the connections between education and training programs and jobs at different levels within a given industry or occupational sector." (Jenkins, D., Career Pathways: Aligning Public Resources to Support Individual and Regional Economic Advancement in the Knowledge Economy, August 2006, Workforce Strategy Center)
  • Common elements of roadmaps include skill set breakdowns, labor market forecasts, occupational information and college courses associated with certificates, credentials and degrees leading to employment in the particular field.
  • "Being able to think in visual images reveals connections and relationships that are difficult to communicate through text...visual mapping is a tool we are all going to need in order to design and disseminate complex information about academic programs in the future." (Stiehl & Lewchuk, 2002)
