Career Preparation

Career Preparation

Preparing today’s students for tomorrow

The Career Prep program is funded by the Perkins IV grant whose purpose is to develop more fully the academic, career, and technical skills of secondary students and postsecondary students who elect to enroll in career and technical education programs. The goal of the Career Prep program is to promote and support high school to college transitions for career and technical education students. Career prep initiatives should be enhancing a high school student’s technical and academic skills and providing opportunities for transition to postsecondary education or into the workforce.

The Wisconsin Career Pathways website was created to assist counselors, teachers, and students in developing programs of study to help students plan their academic studies based on career interests.
