Development of
Maryland’s Career Clusters

ten Career Clusters
• Based upon Maryland’s unique
employment needs
• Career Pathways and Pathway Programs were
identified within each Career Cluster
• Over 350 employers were involved in the
validation and design process
• Focused on the breath, depth, and value added
in CTE programs
