Pathways Regions

The Pathways TN regions are the drivers of the Pathways TN framework. Each region across the state has its own unique areas of strength and is empowered to have regionally driven planning and implementation. The Office of Pathways TN provides helpful resources, guidance, and advocacy. Pathways TN depends on regional buy-in and enterprise to implement education-to-career pathways across the state.

Regional Pathways TN initiatives are facilitated by regional intermediaries at local workforce boards, chambers of commerce, and businesses. They guide the work and direction of our nine regions across the state. Intermediaries provide our staff and state planning team with information about each region's needs to ensure we are supporting alignment at the state level. These intermediaries serve as a champion and liaison, convening business and industry support, coordinating cross-agency conversations, securing resources to sustain the work, and fostering cohesive, purposeful relationships between industry and education to ensure the framework moves from theory to reality.
