O*NET® Products at Work

Health and Human Services Pathway program from Seattle Washington Public Schools external site

Seattle Washington Public Schools used O*NET data in its Health and Human Services Pathway program. Career educators used O*NET occupational information to structure their work in reorganizing courses of study. For the occupations in their curriculum, they used the common language of O*NET data to support the content a course should include. Educators also considered crediting courses across Pathways. For example, they might have identified a Career and Technical Education course that also fulfilled a requirement in art, social studies, or English by looking for O*NET abilities, skills, and work contexts that are common across multiple Pathways.
