Interesting that Office Technology is high priority. We have a program that struggles to maintain enrollment. It seems to do better at the adult schools than our college. Do others have this issue too?
Thank you @Jazmine!
Beth, I'm going to speak to this in a moment!
Different TOP codes for Computer Applications
Does the BACCC website have pathway profiles for all of the pathways or just these priority pathways?
How do we get these slides?

Is that employment in any job, or a job related to their training?
@Racy Data relates to students exiting the Office Technology program
Oops, actually that doesn’t answer my question - are those percentages working in jobs related to their Office Tech training, or ANY job?
Those are the only ones we use - so missing all of Chabot
they are used for Word, Excel etc....
Also, AWS is offering certifications as well.
We have had great success in offering business pathway courses as part or our comprehensive dual enrollment programming at Skyline College.
Love that, Joell
Joell, PREACH! I feel like the Anchor standards and overarching skills need to be spoken by CC instructors, for cross pathway pollination
As an Adult School that receives WIOA 243 funding, we would like to embed the office tech skills into our ESL program… a goal to have rolling next year.
One of the issues is in our district the CTE graduation requirement is only 5 credits, so if CTE is not “talked up” as a viable pathway, most students just take one class to get it done. A career education coach is totally needed to encourage students and schools to see the “bigger picture.”
@Richard Charvet The "voc ed" stigma is real. In addition the high school pathways do not always connect smoothly to CC programs... closing that gap is an opportunity for Dual Enrollment. The focus on helping students to understand the skills that are being developed and what other careers leverage those is also something a CE Coach could support.
Thank you for giving me the chance to discuss K12 perspectives and possible options, focus. I'm more than willing to be a thought partner to look further into focus standards and anchor standards and bridging K12 pathways to multiple CC options.
I have to jump off for a College Day meeting. Thanks all for your work and ideas.
@MalloryStevens, totally agree. I wish that CC’s would take time to look at our pathways, standards and build courses that work for articulation and dual enrollment as we roll new pathways and pivots. I feel like that is a huge disconnect and they have more flexibility in their course outlines. As well, if our courses are already A-G approved, it makes the dual enrolled/ articulated courses more easily certified as 4 year transferable.
Joell you did great!
THanks Dawn. :)
The whole idea of skills based learning is important in other areas as well. Digital Design for instance, Photshop works in photography as well as gaming and other digital areas. Just as begining coding explains and helps computer coding and applications.
Well said, Dawn!
I would love to hear more about how these programs are leveraging industry certifications as core in their courses and what the labor numbers look like coming from HS with industry standards, and with certs being achieved in CC…
@Greg. The whole adobe suite really overlaps across ICT and AME and Business Mgmt AND Marketing/ Entrepreneurship…
@Dawn Fregosa I hear you. Engaging as a partnership when pathways as they are being developed and on an ongoing basis is the way to go. Really thinking as a K-14 system.
@Dawn, Yes... to approach from a strong skill and then branch out to specific careers...
we align with the National Bookkeeping Certification in our Noncredit Bookkeeping/Accounting program between West Valley and Campbell Adult and Community Education - https://aipb.org/
@ Eric, I appreciate your alignment, and I think by meeting those standards/ Industry Certs could be achieved in Business, Marketing/ Entrepreneurship Finance. I have students in some of my client schools who are doing Quickbooks certification in ALL three of those in Capstones, and Microsoft/ Google certs in the Concentrator. They get to CC, and know what they need, and have to re-take classes, despite holding the certs. I feel like that could be an awesome place to articulate kids, based on Industry certs.
In my research we are trying to develop pathways but they are acting more like prerequisites that lend themselves to course pathways at college. So, there is no direct “pathway” perse, but certain classes move students into a certain direction that would prepare them for success in a college career pathway. Most I have found are “singleton courses” that are good, but not directly aligned. The articulation to move students in the direction we want is paramount.
This is very cool John and Doreen!
This is fantastic, John!
This is great. I can’t get into it at the moment. Does the crosswalk include the Monterey Peninsula colleges?
Something like this? http://pathways.opendoorssouthbay.org
Thank you! This was great.
Thank you to the BACCC team for all of this great work!
@ Lisa pollet. Thank you for this! Was trying to build something similar.
Thank you. Elena Toscano Napa Valley AEC
