TBEC Achieve Texas Education and Career Planning Tools
The TBEC Achieve Texas Education and Career Planning Tools supports highly personalized career exploration and educational planning through user completion of research-based assessments that help individuals understand what they like to do, what they are good at doing, and the kind of work environment they prefer. Schools and students can use the system to create four-, six-, and eight-year student education plans, to explore colleges and careers across the state, to research opportunities for financial aid - all of this and more, from a single web site. As an Internet-based system, students, their parents/guardians, adults, and educators can access the system at any time from wherever they are - school, the library, workforce resources centers, or even at home. Once they create an account, users can use the system for a lifetime, without cost to them.
