8th Grade Career Pathway Fairs

 

8 GPF

 

The middle school career pathway fair was designed to help 8th-grade students make a more informed choice on which Career & Technical Education Pathway they plan to study during high school based on their YouScience Aptitude and Interest Assessment results. 

In the State of Tennessee, students are required to complete at least three credits in one CTE Pathway or the ROTC, Fine Arts, or AP Pathways.

As part of this program, 8th graders are allowed to select four CTE pathway study areas from their zoned high school that they'd like to explore. They are encouraged to pick the CTE pathways based on their YouScience results. On the day of the event, students rotate between classes and participate in sessions featuring one CTE student, one CTE instructor, and one Rutherford County industry partner where they are presented with information on what the pathway encompasses and what a career in the industry could entail. During this time, students are encouraged to take notes, ask questions and discuss their day with parents, so they can best plan their high school freshman schedules, which happen in the early spring. 

By providing 8th graders with a more in-depth look at what skills they possess through YouScience and a direct correlation to what high school classes and potential careers are available through CTE pathways, students and parents are able to make more informed choices related to the educational and career choices that are available.
