Career Lattice: Year One Report Meeting at the: Puget Sound Energy Olympia, WA June 22, 2011 Bigelow Canyon sunrise Photo courtesy of Portland General Electric
Career Lattice Framework for depicting relationships between and among jobs. More complex than career ladder; information based on industry input. Includes information about training, certificates and job requirements.
Career Lattice in Action Educators use lattice to identify training gaps and develop or improve programs. Industry uses lattice to clarify career path with new and incumbent workers and design internal training. Workers/students use lattice to navigate career options and develop new skills.
Career Lattice Deliverables Summary and analysis of Skill Standards Sample job descriptions Identify and illustrate connections and gaps between and among specific jobs Narrative overview of Career Lattice Draft of lattice web images Post findings on project website 4
Lattice Components Alternate titles for occupations Narrative description of career path Sample job descriptions for each occupation Skill Standards information/links Relevant education and training program links Connections between occupations 5
Career Lattice Process Background research conducted Skill Standards and sample job descriptions collected 30 industry interviews conducted; 13 employers across five state region Connections between and among jobs identified; summary prepared Connected to training and education info 6
Interview Participants WASHINGTON Centralia City Light Seattle City Light Avista Utilities Puget Sound Energy Evergreen School District Evergreen Power McKinstry OREGON Portland General Electric Energy Trust of Oregon MONTANA NorthWestern Energy IDAHO Idaho Power REGIONAL Bonneville Power Administration PacifiCorp 7
A Career Lattice Does: Focus on pathways, not skills Include more information than originally sought Include corporate and education training info Need additional focus in Year Two Does Not: Provide company specific information Develop Skill Standards or Skills Panels Include all energy occupations Provide complete gap analysis information 8
Career Lattice Findings Jobs are Distinct Jobs are Changing Occupations vary among employers Smart Grid will require more IT, Data Management & Analysis, and Communication skills 9
Next Steps Create on-line tool to make data accessible (proposed) Plot occupations into Smart Grid image (see samples) Follow up industry interviews, refine data Connect Career Lattice to supply and demand information (proposed) 14
Request for Ed Taskforce Input Provide input on draft Smart Grid images Review Career Lattice content posted on http://cleanenergyexcellence.org/ http://cleanenergyexcellence.org/ 15
