CAREER PATHWAYS

Pathways are not new to education.

For over a century, employers and educators have worked to develop courses to support students’ matriculation into the workforce. Ultimately, that’s the function of a pathway. Career Pathways help to design curriculum and course schedules around student needs.

We have nearly 15 years of experience in designing and implementing Career Pathways programs and services at high schools and community colleges. You can click here to learn more about Career Pathways.

TRAINING DEVELOPMENT

We can connect your training with the workplace.

If you are an employer, we can design targeted training programs that help your employees be more successful in their jobs.

If you are a CTE teacher (high school or college), we can help you redesign your courses to reflect the emerging needs of the local workplace.

If you are a high school or college administrator, we can work with your faculty to build cutting-edge CTE programs that help your students get hired.

MEETING FACILITATION

Let us help you make meetings more productive.

We will work with you through a 3-phase process:

Planning – where we set the goals and scope, map the agenda, and co-design the meeting:

Facilitating – with engaging activities, balanced participation, and action-focused outcomes

Summarizing – where we document all output, debrief with leaders, and identify the best next steps

Are you a leader looking to find more effective ways to make team decisions and better project planning?

Are you an educator struggling to make your curriculum relevant to the changing workplace?

Are you an employer who needs help developing training that changes job performance and improves the bottom line?

Are you an administrator who wants to create seamless educational transitions for your students?

WHAT WE DO

WE FOCUS THE CONVERSATIONS

We understand how difficult it can be to facilitate meetings, analyze job descriptions, and do the kind of research that leads to positive, productive action. We help take the guesswork out of those conversations and bring clarity and compassion to the table.

WHAT WE DO

WE BUILD INDUSTRY-EDUCATION PARTNERSHIPS

We know how important it is for businesses and organizations to collaborate to achieve their goals.

We work with our clients to conduct local labor market research, create CTE field experiences and internships, and develop secondary and post-secondary career pathways.

WHAT WE DO

WE CREATE TRAINING THAT WORKS

When it comes to having a workforce that is skilled, focused, and productive, so much of the results that organizations see boils down to whether or not their staff is properly trained.

At Connections Consulting, we create employee training workshops, develop Career-Technical Education (CTE) courses, and redesign existing courses and programs to achieve maximum efficiency.

We all need help making connections – and we are here to help make yours a success!
