What you can expect to experience while on the job
Overall employment of career and technical education teachers is projected to grow 4 percent from 2016 to 2026, slower than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will vary by type of institution. While employment of vocational teachers in postsecondary institutions is projected to be show little or no change, employment of career and technical education teachers in middle and secondary schools is projected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations. Overall demand for career and technical education teachers will be driven by a continued demand for programs that prepare students for technical careers at middle and high schools and at postsecondary institutions. As middle and high school students continue to be required to take more academic classes and fewer career and technical classes, employment growth of career and education teachers in middle and high schools may be affected. In addition, public schools are dependent on government funding for career and technical programs. When budgets for these programs are reduced, employment growth for career and technical teachers may be limited.Read More
