Career Pathways and Sector Strategies Legislated Priorities and Next Steps Works Councils Staff Information

3 The Challenge in Indiana
1 in 6 Hoosiers do not have a high school diploma (Chamber) 1 in 3 do not have the postsecondary skills needed to achieve a self-sustaining wage (Chamber) Only 35% of Indiana’s 3.4 million working age adults hold a 2 or 4 year college degree, below the national average of 39% (Lumina Foundation) Indiana is 40th amongst states in per capita income and educational attainment beyond a high school diploma (IRBIC)

4 Governor Pence’s Roadmap for Indiana
Increase private sector employment Attracting new investment in Indiana, with emphasis on manufacturing, agriculture, life sciences and logistics Improving the math & reading skills of elementary students Increasing graduation rates Improving the quality of the Hoosier workforce Improving the health, safety and well-being of Hoosier families, especially children

5 Two Plan A’s “Every student deserves the same opportunity for success, whether they want to go to college or start their career right out of high school. This is not about a Plan A and a Plan B – this is about two Plan A’s. It advances the principle that all honest work is honorable work.” -Governor Mike Pence

6 Establishment of CECI The Center for Education and Career Innovation (CECI) was established by Governor Mike Pence via an Executive Order in August Its mission is to advance the learning outcomes for Hoosier students and adult workers by: aligning statewide efforts to connect the education and workforce training pipeline with the needs of Indiana’s employers, and supporting the expansion of innovative and highly effective education and career development initiatives.

7 Structure of CECI Center for Education and Career Innovation (CECI) staffs the Works Councils and also staffs the following: Indiana Career Council Education Roundtable State Board of Education CECI partners closely with CHE, DOE, DWD and other state agencies as well as philanthropic organizations and other statewide non-profits. Connectivity is critical. CECI is the hub that brings together the entire pipeline of education and training. Works council work is specific CTE and secondary, but its implications are beyond that because recommendations go up to career council, and input will carry over to workforce generally speaking. We are not leaving out the connectivity to postsecondary study even as we

8 CECI Guiding Principles
CECI’s guiding principles include: Supporting integrated service delivery that is student- and adult worker-centric, and is focused on defined outcomes. Ensuring Indiana’s educators are given the necessary freedom, support and flexibility to succeed in the classroom, and are rewarded for their successes. Fostering, identifying and scaling the most innovative and effective education and workforce models, tools and resources. Holding students, adult workers, educators, schools, higher education institutions and workforce programs accountable for their progress through rigorous, fair and transparent accountability systems. Eliminating silos and aligning resource allocation efforts in collaboration with public and private sector partners, providers and employers.

9 Indiana Works Councils

14 Propose Alternative CTE Curricula
Utilizing data analyses of current CTE opportunities and industry data, propose new ideas for CTE curricula at a regional level Internships/apprenticeships Industry certifications Dual credit Approval through State Board of Education Associated Deadlines and Funding

15 Unemployment, Earnings, and Education
Highlights the need for having an education – better protected in recessionary times: “skill security” Lower education levels mean lower wages (under $20,000/yr without H.S. Diploma) and higher unemployment levels (19% unemployment without H.S. Diploma) About 50% over 25 have HS diploma or less DATA: Not in Labor Force Civilian Labor Force Unemployed Unemployment Rate Education Median Earnings 156, , , % Less than High School $19,425 281, , , % High School or equivalent $27,577 199, , , % Some college or Associate Degree $31,354 108, , , % Bachelor Degree or higher $49,107 Weighted >= Bachelors $43, $58,506

16 CTE in Indiana 53 pathways established by IDOE across 11 Career Clusters ~ $108M allocated to 47 CTE districts according to state and federal statutes In 190,322 Enrollments in 34,707 CTE Concentrators 4148 Certifications Earned IDOE Report on CTE in March 2013

17 Career Pathways - Defined
“A series of connected education and training strategies and support services that enable individuals to secure industry relevant certification(s) and obtain employment within an occupation and to advance to higher levels of future education and employment in that area.” Career pathways – a definition U.S. Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, and Labor (2012). Interagency Letter on Career Pathways.

19 CTE in Indiana We have good building blocks already in place, and when DOE did that, they did it with industry at the table. A good framework. But we need to focus. If you look at LMI, we have a public policy decision to make about what we’re going to fund. Where are the credentials, are they getting it in volume that employers need. If not, what are we going to do about it? Kansas has done a lot of work in maximizing the number and nature of credentials that they can earn. They may have a list of certifications.

20 Indiana College and Career Pathway Plan – State Model

23 Career Pathways & Sector Strategies
State/Regional/Local commitment to: Share vision and overarching strategies Respond to local/regional employer needs in key sectors Establish metrics toward specific indicators & outcomes Align financial/other resources to incentivize coordination across systems Contextualize instruction across pathways from secondary (including CTE) to postsecondary education & training Offer multiple entry and exit points amid stackable credential continuum for clients of all ages Support student transitions and reduce barriers to completion through support services, assessments and counseling States Leading in Sector Strategies: Pennsylvania Life Sciences (Bio-Medical and Health Care) Business and Financial Services Education Energy Advanced Materials and Diversified Manufacturing Building and Construction Agriculture and Food Production Information and Communication Services Logistics and Transportation Lumber Wood and Paper Kentucky: Automobile/Aircraft Manufacturing Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics; Business Services and Research and Development Health Care/Social Assistance Energy Creation/Transmission Colorado Healthcare Manufacturing Aerospace Oregon Advanced Manufacturing Natural Resources Clean Technology High Technology Footwear, Outdoor Gear and Apparel Distribution and Logistics Tourism Aviation Defense Creative Industries Health Services Washington Construction Ship and Boat Building Gypsum Products Manufacturing Cloud Computing Defense Technology Wisconsin Health Care Michigan Agriculture Information Technology Local-Defined Cluster

24 Sector Strategies - Defined
Sector-based strategies take a comprehensive, broad-based approach to identifying and addressing skills needs across key industries within a region rather than focusing on the workforce needs of individual employers on a case-by-case basis. Sector strategies often result in the formation of industry partnerships, which are employer-led partnerships with support from workforce development, economic development, and education partners. ECO15, Northeast Indiana Partnership, Advancing Manufacturing Initiative, etc.

25 Focus of Sector Strategies
Sector strategies harness industry intelligence to identify industry needs and design education and training resources to meet needs. Industry partnerships create plans to: Identify key skill needs of sector: certifications, credentials, degrees required for entry and promotion within sector Provide input into the development of training programs to meet skill needs of sector Establish and support career pathways within sector Identify and align resources for education and training to support sector Establish strategies for measuring success and impact of sector-defined education and training strategies They serve to guide efficient investments of public resources and leverage private resources

36 Evaluate CTE Opportunities
Works Council will review the following: Talent Pipeline Employer Demand Teaming with FutureWorks to develop a supply and demand analysis, focusing on employer demand and supply of a qualified workforce Problem Statement: looking at cte classes and how they back up toward leading to career and credentials recognized in industry. They can take a lot of hours but no good if they don’t have a credential. Need employers to say that.equally we do want it to transfer over to postsecondary—needs to be applauded. See what kinds of transfers are happening. Crosswalks are critical. Stackable credentials/lifelong learning/stopping in and stopping out (on-ramps and off-ramps). Opportunity b/c we have so many students who take a course—how does that lend itself to students getting into career or postsecondary by region. How does that change the emphasis that teachers. NGA Last Week—VA wants all students to get an industry-recognized credential so that they can go into career or postsecodnary through crosswalk.
