The Idaho Division of Professional-Technical Education participates in the States’ Career Cluster Initiative to improve student engagement, learning outcomes, and secondary-postsecondary linkages while making efficient use of teaching resources.

The agency disseminates a number of useful career cluster materials on its web site, including labor market data organized by cluster, which is produced using EMSI’s Strategic Advantage tool. In doing so, Idaho joins a growing number of career and professional-tech schools and agencies which are leveraging data to ensure that curricula are aligned with the labor market.
