CA Career Pathway Trust Technical Assistance
CCPT Technical Assistance
The California Department of Education has contracted with Napa County Office of Education to provide technical assistance to California Career Pathways Trust (CCPT) Grantees. This work will focus in areas related to work-based learning, regional structures and industry partnerships, career pathway development, and K-14 alignment. In July 2014, the California Legislature passed and the Governor signed into law the California Education Code, sections 53010 through 53016, and the Budget Act of 2014, Statutes 2014, creating the California Career Pathways Trust. Funds in the amount of $250 million have been made available to school districts, county superintendents of schools, direct-funded charter schools, regional occupational centers or programs operated by a joint powers authority, and community college districts in the form of one-time competitive grants.
The overarching goal of the California Career Pathways Trust (CCPT) is to build robust partnerships between employers, schools, and community colleges in order to better prepare students for the 21st century workplace and improve student transition into postsecondary education, training, and employment. K-14 pathway programs train students for jobs in high-skill, high-wage, high-growth, and emerging regional economic sectors.
