Career Cluster Program Index

The States’ Career Clusters Initiative (SCCI) is a national initiative intended to help states and schools organize their programs and guidance activities around clusters of similar occupations. The 16-cluster format used by the U.S. Department of Education encompasses all 970+ occupations.

“Our 16 broad career clusters will help students enhance the link between the knowledge they acquire in school and the skills they need in the workforce. Without limiting students, career clusters help them focus on an area of interest or a possible career path.”
