Preparation for Adults through Training and Higher Education (CUNY Career PATH)

A consortium of CUNY's six community colleges and two of its comprehensive colleges will offer Career PATH, building CUNY's capacity to effectively serve adult learners. The program will provide basic academic and English language skills instruction contextualized to five industry sectors with the goal of engaging adult learners and helping them bypass traditional developmental education. Strengthened connections between college transition programs, occupational training and degree programs—bolstered by strong advisement and enhanced student services—will help students progress on each step of their education and career pathway. The program will create new opportunities to earn college credit in conjunction with short-term occupational training and industry-recognized credentials. A virtual enterprise simulation will help engage adult learners, build student computer and soft skills, and provide industry exposure.
