Career Pathways System Advisory Council; established. Establishes the Career Pathways System Advisory Council. The purpose of the council is to ensure the coordination and collaboration of career and technical education, adult education, and workforce development programs through business-driven sector strategies that provide for sequences of education and training articulated with higher levels of education and regional and state workforce needs and that also provide career coaching and advising support services and experiential learning. The Council will develop workforce readiness indicators, in coordination with the Virginia Workforce Council and the Council on Virginia's Future, which will include enrollment and graduation statistics in secondary, postsecondary, and adult education programs in science, technology, engineering, math, or health care-related areas; numbers of targeted industry certifications; and the Commonwealth's education and training capacity for key industry sectors, and will produce a scorecard documenting progress in these areas. The scorecard will also include a report on the progress of interagency collaboration and shared funding for the purposes of attaining select education and workforce development goals. The bill includes a sunset provision of July 1, 2016. Read the Bill »
