Education Career Pathways Information

Career Pathway

Career pathways show you how to connect your educational choices – Career and Technical Education, Career Certifications, Two-Year Degrees, Four-Year Degrees and beyond – to work-based learning as you prepare for a host of careers in these 21st Century Industries.

In order to support strong educational outcomes, we also need well prepared educators across PK-12 continuum. New Mexico has suffered a long-term shortage of teachers, giving rise to the call for a new generation of educators to take up the mantle of preparing the generation that follows them.

For those considering a career in education, the full pathway in our county is well-mapped and well aligned.

The pathways work both horizontally and vertically, showing you how far you need to go in your education and hands-on learning to be ready for the careers you want.
