The ACCCP is established as a committee of the Alabama Workforce Council to annually identify regional and statewide in-demand occupations, career pathways, and credentials of value.  The ACCCP is tasked with analyzing primary and secondary labor market data and data from the Alabama Terminal on Linking and Analyzing Statistics (ATLAS) on Career Pathways to determine, annually, among the sixteen (16) career clusters and seventy-nine (79) associated career pathways, which occupations and career pathways are in-demand at the regional and state level.

The system outcomes of the ACCCP work will create financially sustainable aligned career pathway systems for youth and adults, increased number of skilled workers with credentials of value to the labor market and great cost efficiencies by reducing duplication of services.

The Two-Pronged Mission of the ACCCP

The ACCCP is tasked with a two-fold mission:

  • Identify the in-demand career pathways, both statewide and in each of Alabama’s seven workforce regions

    • Develop competency models for each of the in-demand occupations
    • Develop career lattices and pathways out of sequences of the in-demand and associated occupations
  • Identify the credentials of value associated with each of the in-demand occupations

The five-star rubric evaluates each occupation with one star being awarded for satisfying each characteristic below. Criteria I-III and either IV or V must be satisfied to be considered an in-demand occupation.

  • I. At Least 70% of median regional wage

  • II. Shows annual positive growth for the next ten years

  • III. Projected to have a minimum of 15 openings a year

  • IV. Median wage exceeds 70% of the Lower Living Standard Income Level.

  • V. Requires a post-secondary degree, certificate, or credential for initial employment
