Career Clusters

In its simplest sense, career clusters are just groupings of occupations. Those groupings are based on common knowledge and skills. This is not a new idea but what is new about it, is that it is not only a guidance model, but includes the instructional model as well.

The 16 National Career Clusters:

  • Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources
  • Architecture & Construction
  • Arts, Audio/Video Technology & Communication
  • Business Management & Administration
  • Education & Training
  • Finance
  • Government & Public Administration
  • Health Science
  • Hospitality & Tourism
  • Human Services
  • Information Technology
  • Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security
  • Manufacturing
  • Marketing
  • Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics
  • Transportation, Distribution, & Logistics


For more information about the Career Clusters you can visit the Career Tech or the O*Net websites.
