Choosing a career is one of the more important decisions made in life. TSA provides connections to the Career Clusters® chart – developed by the U.S. Department of Education – in its competitive events guides, which are available at the middle school level and the high school level based on the level of the affiliated school.


Career Clusters® are categories of similar occupations and industries. The Career Clusters® chart organizes career planning and helps schools better prepare learners for their future. The chart offers general information about career categories and work opportunities prominent in those areas.
