What is a Career Cluster?

What are Career Clusters and Career Pathways?

A career cluster is a grouping of careers and broad industries based on the skills they have in common. Henrico CTE’s classes and programs all fit under the 17 Career Clusters. Each student will acquire marketable skills, industry-recognized credentials, and eventually essential careers. Within each career cluster, multiple career pathways represent a common set of skills and knowledge, both academic and technical, necessary to pursue a full range of career opportunities within that pathway. Based on the skill sets taught, all Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses are aligned with one or more career clusters and career pathways.
