Adult and Vocational Education Teachers
Employment opportunities in the field of adult education are expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Adults recognize the importance of further education and training for succeeding in today's workplace. In fact, many courses are subsidized by companies that want their employees trained in the latest skills and technology of their field. Many new teachers will also be needed as current ones leave the occupation or retire. As demand for adult and vocational education teachers continues to grow, major employers will be vocational high schools, private trade schools, community colleges, and private adult education enterprises. Immigration also fuels a demand for adult education and ESL teachers, especially in places such as New York, California, and Florida with large foreign-born populations.
