CTE Develops the Workforce in Construction, Law

CTE Develops the Workforce in Construction, Law

Did you know that more than 5.7 million workers will be needed through 2020 in non-residential construction, while occupations dedicated to legal and protective services are expected to grow by 14 percent by 2018?

There’s no industry sector that’s not relevant to career and technical education. Our latest Sector Sheets look at CTE’s role in developing a skilled, adaptable workforce in law, public safety, corrections and security as well as construction and architecture.

Each Sector Sheet explores projections for the workforce in that industry sector and describes how CTE prepares high school, postsecondary and adult students for careers in that sector through CTE courses, career and technical student organizations, work-based learning and more. Each one-pager also includes profiles of exemplary or emerging programs that are leading to student success.

With these new publications, our Sector Sheet series has grown to include 12 publications on CTE and its role in developing various industry sectors. We encourage you to share these advocacy tools with business, policymakers, education leaders and the public to illustrate how CTE supports specific industries and prepares students for in-demand careers.

You can also delve more deeply into construction career pathways with our latest online seminar with experts from NCCER.
