Career Connected Learning


Oregon defines the states of career development through a system of Career Connected Learning—a framework of career awareness, exploration, preparation, and training that is both learner-relevant and directly linked to professional and industry-based expectations.

The CCL framework encompasses four key stages:

  • Career Awareness—learning ABOUT work
  • Career Exploration—learning FOR work
  • Career Preparation—learning THROUGH work
  • Career Training—learning AT work
