Commitment to Action

Health Care Career Pathways

Commitment by

City & County of Denver

In 2015, the Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) and its partners committed to mapping and developing health care career pathways by reviewing and revising the curricula for entry-level career and technical education certificates. Through alumni focus groups and multi-stakeholders meetings, the partners will assess where there is curriculum duplication, break down curriculum into shorter modules, determine where concurrent enrollment credits for these certificates will count towards college, and develop bridge programs to increase access for lower-skilled individuals. The goal is to redesign, align, and integrate local health care curriculum in a way that better supports degree completion, career advancement, and the development of industry-relevant skills.
