What is a Career Cluster?
It is a group of similar occupations in the same field of work that require similar skills. Career clusters may be divided into several pathways and can be used to help students focus educational plans to obtain the necessary knowledge, competencies, and training for success in a particular career pathway. Click a cluster below to see pathways, sample careers, and knowledge and skills necessary for each.
