Promoting Career Connected Learning




Connecting learners with careers, while promoting equity, opportunities, and flexibility for students and schools.

The Northeast Service Cooperative is committed to ensuring all students in our 32 District, 8-county region have equitable access to programs connecting learners to career experiences and opportunities with area businesses, industries, labor unions, and post-secondary education.

We are excited to launch new programs which integrate career exploration, allowing students hands-on, career-connected learning. In addition, we are committed to providing support for our Career & Technical Education (CTE) educators through training, professional development, and teacher externships.

We seek to provide coordination and support for schools to implement career pathways and coordination for professional educators to serve as career navigators and work-based learning coordinators for our students.

We are proud to share the recently produced digital video clips promoting our Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs, pathways and academies at our member school districts.
