Career Tree®

Career Tree®

Deliver a Dynamic Competitive Advantage with the Career Tree.

With one compelling strategy and classroom tool, educators across North America are giving their students and organizations a dynamic competitive advantage. The TFS Career Tree sparks the dialogue, passion, and motivation for students to discover what’s possible in their careers and how to get there.

As part of the TFS Education with Purpose® philosophy, the Career Tree proactively answers the “why?” of today’s younger generations and their parents:

  • Why does academic performance matter?
  • Why should I start thinking about technical skills now?
  • Why do I need a competitive advantage in today’s world?
  • Why should I start planning now for the future I want to enjoy?
  • Why is career-focused education a smart choice?

As the powerful narrative that addresses these questions, the Career Tree drives the ongoing conversation, research, career exploration, goal-setting, and in-class collaboration that are transforming the educational paradigm across North America.

Who Can Use the Career Tree?

The Career Tree was designed to empower students in many different learning and training environments, including high schools, middle schools, K–12 districts, special needs classrooms, technical and community colleges, universities, workforce development settings, adult education centers, and more. Motivation, relevance, and direction are critical at every stage of the learning process — and that’s what the Career Tree helps create.

If I’m a student or parent, why does the Career Tree matter to me?

It’s Time to Change the Narrative.

The self-discovery, marketable skills, and cognitive rigor of career education give students a significant competitive advantage in today’s new economy — and the Career Tree tells that story. Now, we can change the narrative to show students, parents, legislators, and stakeholders how career-focused learning expands rather than limits students’ opportunities, whether they’re headed to college, specialized postsecondary training, the military, or right into their career.

In addition, the Career Tree is a pivotal piece of the proprietary TFS Three Pillars strategy used by leading organizations nationwide. As the foundational truths that characterize the organization’s offerings, the Pillars include a dynamic competitive advantage for the young person, delivered through a robust planning culture, that imparts critical Professional Skills that young people need to succeed.
