Career Pathways Joint Letter Image

12 Federal Agencies sign Joint Letter promoting the use of career pathways.

Career pathways can offer an efficient approach to training and education by connecting the necessary adult basic education, occupational training, postsecondary education, career and academic advising, and supportive services for students and workers to prepare for, obtain, and progress in a career.

While career pathways are not a new concept to our communities, convening 12 agencies across the federal government to work together to promote career pathways is historic and is critical for promoting further scale.

Building on that work, we have expanded support to multiple agencies to foster better coordination of programs and services.  Today, through this Career Pathways Joint Letter, the Administration is demonstrating a strengthened commitment to promote career pathways, providing updated information and resources from the expanded Federal partnership to help States, regions, local entities and tribal communities integrate service delivery across Federal and State funding streams. 

While state and local partners build career pathway systems, at the Federal level, we recognize that we can support our partners’ efforts through our policy, performance, and funding. For additional Federal career pathways resources and tools, click here

The Departments continue to incorporate career pathways approaches into a wide range of program investments, evaluation and research activities, and technical assistance efforts.  More information on Federal career pathways initiatives are located on the following Websites:,, and, as well as the Websites of each Federal agency partner.
