Organizational Background & Mission:
The Pathway to Employment Center (PTEC) was implemented through a DOL TAACCCT grant awarded on October 1, 2011. PTEC at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College is part of the Health Professions Pathway Consortium (H2P) created under the same grant. The program was launched in April 2012 to address the need to skill or re-skill trade-impacted workers/dislocated workers, veterans, unemployed, and low-income incumbent workers. Our focus is to build pathways through strategic initiatives such as: prior-learning assessments and career exploration, contextualized development education, core curriculum development, enhanced retention and completion, and job placement/retention.
Mission: The concept behind PTEC is simple: helping adult learners overcome obstacles that prevent timely completion of academic and career goals.
