EDUCATION AND TRAINING NEEDS Education and training will play an increasingly important role in the labor market outlook over the next 10 years. The focus in training is moving away from training for a specific job. Instead it has shifted to recognize the value and importance of learning skills for a career. Having a broader base of knowledge and being adaptable opens up more job opportunities for students and workers. People looking for work will find they’ll need at least a minimum level of post-secondary education or training for 78 percent (718,000) of the job openings expected in the next 10 years. As seen in Figure 2-4, the largest component of these job openings (42 percent), will be in occupations requiring a diploma, certificate or apprenticeship training. The second largest component (36 percent), will be in occupations requiring a bachelor’s, graduate or first professional degree and/or significant work experience.
