Secondary educators are challenged with providing career and college readiness for a multitude of student interests and abilities. NuPaths works with school districts to deliver focused educational pathways for entry-level information technology (IT) job roles, while providing college credit. Custom programs can meet the needs of a variety of student audiences.
“About 59% of students who began seeking a bachelor’s degree at a 4-year institution in fall 2009 completed that degree within 6 years.”
–National Center for Education Statistics, 2017
Many mid-career adults still aren’t sure about their career path. Yet, students in early adulthood are often pressured into committing 2-to-4 years (or longer) to career preparation in a major they may not really know that much about and at a school that might not be a good fit. And, most college students take on a lot of debt doing so.
“The average student in the Class of 2016 has $37,172 in student loan debt.”
–Forbes, February 2017
NuPaths provides a college alternative for students who aren’t sure whether a college degree is the right path for them. Our 3-to-6 month, role-focused programs prepare students to earn industry recognized information technology (IT) certifications for high-demand IT job roles at a fraction of the cost of a college degree. Students also earn college credits for a head start on future degree completion.
Whether you are transitioning out of college, transitioning into a new career or taking a new direction in your current career, you are part of a workforce that must continuously learn and adapt for career success. A college degree at the start of a working career is only the beginning. There is now a need for the continuous acquisition of new skills, especially as career spans are lengthening and in many occupations it has become essential to acquire new skills as established ones become obsolete.
According to the Pew survey, 54% of all working Americans think it will be essential to develop new skills throughout their working lives; among adults under 30 the number goes up to 61%.
NuPaths provides a 3-to-6 month, role-focused program to prepare students to earn industry recognized information technology (IT) certifications for high-demand IT jobs. Students also earn college credits for a head start on future degree completion.

“Between 2014 and 2016, from 65% to 80% of veterans surveyed left the military without a job and lack of employment is one of their greatest post-military concerns.”
–Watson Institute International and Public Affairs, Brown University, February 2017
Yet, veterans can bring leadership, teamwork, strong work ethic, self-direction and motivation to the workplace; many of the soft skills that are in demand for even the most technical jobs.
Among community colleges, a Hechinger Report review of the federal data suggests an average of only 15% of full-time students receiving GI Bill money graduated with a two-year degree in 2014, the most recent period for which the figure is available.
NuPaths provides an alternative for veterans who aren’t sure whether a college degree is the right path for them. Our 3-to-6 month, role-focused programs prepare veterans to earn industry recognized information technology (IT) certifications for high-demand IT job roles. The role-focused technical skills and industry certifications, coupled with soft skills developed in the military, result in candidates with the leadership, communication and IT skills employers are looking for. Veterans also earn college credits for a head start on future degree completion.
Training isn’t something that’s ‘nice to do’ for an organization. It should be a vital part of a company’s long-term investment and growth strategy.
A long-term research project commissioned by Middlesex University for Work Based Learning found that from a 4,300 workers sample, 74% felt that they weren’t achieving their full potential at work due to lack of development opportunities.
70% of respondents in a 2015 survey said that job-related training and development opportunities directly influence in their decision to stay with a company.
New employee onboarding, new manager training, compliance courses, and leadership development are some of the core training initiatives for organizations. But, companies can often gain the most impact with technical training, especially companies implementing a digital transformation.
A recent survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers found companies with more comprehensive digital strategies tend to achieve stronger financial performance. Yet, the survey also revealed that Executives’ confidence in their organizations’ ability to handle digital transformation and digital change fell 15% between 2015 and 2016.
According to a Digital Business Global Executive Study and Research Project by MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte 25% of executives consider insufficient technical skills as a barrier keeping their organization from taking advantage of digital trends.
NuPaths provides companies with role-focused employee training in information technology (IT). Industry recognized information technology (IT) certifications can prepare employees to take on new roles and expand their technical competency in existing roles; further strengthening the company’s talent to support a digital transformation.
NuPaths’ education is based on information technology (IT) employment demands and the specific IT skills needed to be successful in a job role. A NuPaths’ pathway is a category of IT job roles with common knowledge and skills across the roles, but also
varying levels of skills, knowledge and experience for each role.
New knowledge about how people learn has evolved learning design beyond the standard educational experience of strictly listening to an instructor and taking notes. NuPath’s classes are active, in the sense that students are active participants in their learning through self-directed learning, small group interactions, hands-on practice and personalized learning.
Concentrated, role-focused training in information technology (IT), industry-recognized IT certifications and college credits prepare students for high-demand IT careers. And, workshop experiences during the pathway program to further develop the soft skills that employers identify as critical skills for sustained career success and organizational impact.
