Often when a person has their first job, it is an entry-level position which require minimal experience and education/training. As a person spends time in that position, they may be able to move up to another position based upon their new experience/education/training levels. We call this a “career pathway.” This 7th grade Discovering Learning Pathways lesson leads students through an exploration of the pathway for a student-chosen career.
Even when you are doing a job which you don’t intend to stay in forever, you’re building your employability skills.

In this 8th grade Job Skills lesson, students will investigate the skills and personal characteristics which are transferable from one occupation to another.
