Advanced Manufacturing Career Pathway Planning Meetings

Certified Career Pathways Meetings:

The Career Pathways Kickoff Event on Feb. 23rd, industry, educators and community partners will hear about a REGIONAL Career Pathways effort.  

The Regional Partnership Workforce Development Board will be working on the Modern Manufacturing certified pathway.  DavidsonWorks, (Davidson County Workforce Development Board) will be working on a Transportation/Logistics certified pathway and Guilford Workforce Development Board will work on an Aviation certified pathway.  A Nursing pathway has already been certified by Northwest Piedmont Workforce Development Board. 

With this regional approach to pathways, everyone in the TriadWorks area (Alamance, Caswell, Davie, Davidson, Forsyth, Guilford, Montgomery, Moore, Orange, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin) will have access to all four of these pathways once certified.  This is an exciting endeavor for us, and for our future workforce!

General Information from

Career Pathways

A career pathway is the start-to-finish journey for someone that leads to a good job at a good salary. All of the education, training opportunities, and credentials needed for that great job make up the career pathway. In North Carolina, workforce and education agencies are teaming up with industry to develop NCWorks Certified Career Pathways to educate people on the skills and credentials they need to get those jobs. 

To create a workforce system responsive to the economy’s needs, the NCWorks Commission approved the criteria for NCWorks Certified Career Pathways in May 2015. These criteria, and a Q&A about career pathways, are available below. (see links)

·         Certified Career Pathways – Questions and Answers

·         NCWorks Career Pathways – Application and Guidelines

The three pathways we’re focusing on are high-demand jobs for our region AND they will have a significant impact on our future workforce.
