Learning Styles and Career Readiness


AchieveTexas College and Career Initiative is an education initiative designed to prepare students for a lifetime of success. It allows students to achieve excellence by preparing them for secondary and postsecondary opportunities, career preparation and advancement, meaningful work, and active citizenship.

Learning Style Inventory

To gain a better understanding of yourself as a learner, you need to evaluate the way you prefer to learn or process information. By doing so, you will be able to develop strategies which will enhance your learning potential. The following evaluation is a short, quick way of assessing your learning style. No studies have validated this inventory. Its main benefit is to get you to think about yourself, to consider learning alternatives; not to rigidly classify you.

Getting Ready for College Early
Getting a college education is an investment that will pay back for a lifetime: people with a college education have better job opportunities, earn more money, and develop skills and knowledge that can never be taken away. However, what many families don't realize is that preparing for college doesn't begin during a student's junior or senior year of high school; it begins even before a student first sets foot in school, and it continues through middle school and high school. Getting ready for college means planning for the future and making some very important decisions early. This guidebook will help you and your children understand the steps you need to take during the middle and junior high school years to get ready for college.

Students can review careers by cluster, review the featured career, match careers to their interests, or search for a particular career. For each career, students will have access to a variety of information:
  • Tasks
  • Wages
  • Career outlook

  • Education
  • Knowledge
  • Skills
  • Similar careers
