PATHS Standards

PATHS programs use workplace readiness standards as part of every student's ongoing grading. Employers across Maine agree that workplace readiness skills are essential in every career path. The workplace readiness skills are evident through instructional simulations, project-based learning, work-based learning, and Career and Technical Student Organizations. Students with workplace readiness skills can apply those employable skills in all areas of their lives.

Co-Op Placements

Many PATHS programs offer students an opportunity for a work-based learning experience. These experiences can be in the form of pre-apprenticeship placement, internships, clinical rotations, or job shadowing. Program instructors will determine each student’s readiness to take on this professional responsibility. Only students in good standing will be offered a work-based learning experience. A student in good standing is one that demonstrates a high level of commitment to their learning through good attendance and reliable performance in their respective programs.
