Occupational Outlook Quarterly US Bureau of Labor
Statistics
11
Looking at Bureau of Labor Statistics
occupational projections data, it is easy to see
that a bachelors degree is not the level of
education we need most.
12
Number of jobs and job growth in Virginia
Office Admin Support is the largest category
Computer Mathematical is the fastest-growing
category
13
The 15 largest jobs in Virginia
Only one of these jobs requires a 4 year degree.
14
The BLS reports how much education workers in
each occupation have
Occupational Employment by Educational Level
HS or less
Some college/ postsec
Education level
Bachelors or more
Occupation
Most occupations are classified as HS/SC. This
means that more than 80 of workers in the
occupation have have some postsecondary education
or less.
15
Will these HS/SC jobs still exist in the future?

16
The national pattern is the roughly same.
High School or Some College
High School, thru BA/BS or more
BA/BS or more
Some College or BA/BS or more
High School Diplomaor less
The demand for college education will rise, but
slowly.
17
Most jobs in Virginia are open to people with a
high school diploma, an associates degree, or
other postsecondary training. This is true now
and will continue to be true in the future.
But are these good jobs?
The truth is, some are and some arent.
18
Some of these HS/SC jobs pay low wages and have
little chance for advancement.
But others pay well and lead to more
opportunities.
National median wage, 2004
19
Whats the difference between the good jobs and
the others?
Specialized training and licensing or
certification.
Anybody with good manners, a strong back, and a
good memory can get a shot at a waitressing job.
BUT
You need qualifications to become an automotive
technician, electrician, LPN, nursing assistant,
or HVAC technician.
20
Technical jobs offer good students a chance to
make a good living, without running up a lot of
debt

The Case for CTE
  • As valuable as a bachelors degree is we just
    cant afford to keep pouring more money into this
    end of the system while allowing technical
    education to languish.
