The Alliance for Quality Career Pathways (AQCP) Framework Version 1.0 – establishes a common understanding of quality career pathways, a clear set of criteria and indicators for what constitutes a quality state and local/regional career pathway system, as well as metrics to assess participant progress and success. The framework, developed by The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), is designed to help career pathway partners continuously improve their systems. It also can serve as a collaborative, comprehensive strategy for policymakers and funders to align and enhance their investments, technical assistance, and guidance for building, scaling, and sustaining career pathway systems.
What should I look for? The companion tools including: an executive summary, brief overviews for how funders, leaders involved in or exploring career pathways, and practitioners can use the framework, and self-assessment tools.
