USDOE Occupational Areas
Technological advances and global competition have transformed the nature of work. Tomorrow's jobs will require more knowledge, better skills, and more flexible workers than ever before. Tomorrow's workers must be prepared to change jobs and careers several times, continually updating their knowledge and skills.
To prepare today's students for tomorrow, schools are working to help students achieve in challenging subjects. One key approach to this goal is to provide students with relevant contexts for learning.
Career clusters link what students learn in school with the knowledge and skills they need for success in college and careers.
Career clusters identify pathways from secondary school to two- and four-year colleges, graduate school, and the workplace so students can recognize the relationship between what they learn in school and what they can do in the future. This connection to future goals motivates students to work harder and enroll in more rigorous courses.
Career Clusters prepare all students for college and careers.
These 16 clusters represent all career possibilities. Click on a cluster to get a list of Career Kokua occupations for further career exploration.
