Career Pathways

Welcome to Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College's Career Pathways Program. We are excited about the opportunity to assist students in achieving their educational goals in the healthcare industry. Careers are waiting to happen and we are eager to help our students succeed!

The mission of Career Pathways is to provide innovative academic pathways to higher education. These Pathways have the capacity to address the healthcare workforce crisis through certificate programs, diploma programs, associate degree programs, and continuing education courses for healthcare professionals. We also have working relationships with multiple institutions which can assist students in earning bachelor degrees and beyond. Let the Career Pathways assist you in making the first move to your new career.

We fully understand that life doesn't stop for education. That is why flexible courses have been created to accommodate all students. Night and weekend programs are available as well as short-term training that gets you in, out, and on your way to your new career. All programs offered can be used as a stepping stones to further your career in healthcare.

We offer a wide array of student support services and activities that will facilitate the learning of our students. Counselors and Academic Advisors are available to guide students in decisions related to programs and classes, which will facilitate the attainment of the student's personal goals and ambitions.

Through an agreement with the Adult Education Department, Career Pathways students are tested through each level of the program. Upon enrolling, students are administered the TABE test. Those scoring below 11.7 grade level are entered into a program fully paid for by the Kentucky Adult Education Department.

All the programs offered by Career Pathways are flexible and they are designed to work with you and your individual goals. Our team understands that there may be stumbling blocks along the way, but we are here to help! Let the Career Pathways team partner up with you on your pathway to success!

As you can see, the Career Pathways Program has much to offer. Whether you are a student pursuing a new career, a community member interested in continuing education classes, or a healthcare professional interested in enhancing your skills, Career Pathways can help you achieve your goals. We look forward to the opportunity to serve our students and this region.
