END OF PATHWAY ASSESSMENTS (EOPA)
Career related pathways are structured to include three sequential courses that include age appropriate experiences which prepare students for the school-to-career transition. Upon the completion of the three pathway courses, students take an End Of Pathway Assessment (EOPA). Georgia, like many other career and technical education programs around the nation, has worked in recent years to establish a measurement mechanism to ascertain the level of technical skill attainment on behalf of its career pathway completers. Georgia’s measurement process requires states to implement a valid and reliable assessment model linked directly to industry validated standards. Students that pass the EOPA earn Industry Certifications/Credentials in their field.
Students who are eligible to participate in EOPA activities should:
have successfully completed the three or four designated courses in the pathway; or
be enrolled in the final designated (third or fourth) course of the pathway and be on track to successfully complete the last designated course.
The Georgia Career Pipeline web site is provided to help Georgia businesses see the availability of young, talented students in a specific Georgia county, zip code, or Economic Development region of the state that possess a type of service or technical skill, and help businesses make important decisions concerning growth, development, and workforce needs.
Students are considered to be within Georgia’s Career Pipeline when they have enrolled in a Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) pathway course at a Georgia Public School.

CTAE Advisory Council
Warren County School System recognizes the value and importance of receiving business and industry input. Our goal is for each Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) program to have a successful and functioning advisory council.
Advisory councils create partnerships between CTAE programs and businesses and industries in the communities they serve. Advisory Council members provide support and advice to the CTAE programs in an effort to assist in producing graduates prepared to enter post‐secondary training and/or the workforce.
As reflected by GA Dept. of Education, “Work-Based Learning placements represent the pinnacle of the Career-Related Education experience. To qualify for a WBL placement, a student must be in grades 11 or 12 and at least 16 years old. Students must also have a defined Career Pathway in order to participate in the Work-Based component of Career-Related Education. This is especially important for successful completion of a student’s pathway in that their job placement is directly related to the curriculum of the Career Technical and Agricultural Education classes they have completed or in which they are concurrently enrolled.”
