The public community college in South Los Angeles developed Pathways for Academic, Career, and Transfer Success, which provides the framework for increasing the number of certificates, degrees, and industry-recognized credentials earned.

Students Travel Pathways to Success in the Classroom and Beyond

LA Trade Technical College

One of nine campuses in the Los Angeles Community College District, the Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LATTC) serves thousands of students in the L.A. area pursuing post-secondary education and certification. Although a large proportion of students pursue technical training at LATTC, they also can obtain associate's degrees and choose to transfer to a four-year university. Nearly half of LATTC students also work a minimum of 30 hours per week at jobs outside of school.

To help students balance their academic and professional lives — as well as to provide a framework for success following college — LATTC has created the Pathways system, which offers six areas of study: advanced transportation and manufacturing; construction, maintenance and utilities; design and media arts; health sciences; liberal arts; and culinary and cosmetology arts. The Pathways program combines courses, activities, and supportive resources designed to equip students with the skills, knowledge, certifications, and credentials that they need to see their own pathway culminate in career success.
