Career pathways is gaining steady acceptance as an integrative framework for promising approaches to post-secondary education and training for low-income and low-skill adults.

In line with the Vice President's report and WIOA, the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program released a paper, Using Labor Market Information to Design Job-Driven Training Programs (PDF), in December 2014, outlining eight steps to help programs identify, translate, and use data and Labor Market Information (LMI) to inform training program offerings and build strong partnerships with local employers. Understanding and using traditional, real-time, and wage related data to verify employer demand can help ensure programs offer education and training opportunities that are job-driven and will lead to promising career pathways for program participants.

HPOG offered the Webinar, "Using Labor Market Information to Design Job-Driven Training Programs" to present this paper, outline the importance of Labor Market Information, and review in detail the eight components of the tool discussed in the paper. A case study of a hypothetical program was also used as an illustrative example.
