Building America s Skilled Technical Workforce in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

Skilled technical occupationsâ€"defined as occupations that require a high level of knowledge in a technical domain but do not require a bachelor's degree for entryâ€"are a key component of the U.S. economy. In response to globalization and advances in science and technology, American firms are demanding workers with greater proficiency in literacy and numeracy, as well as strong interpersonal, technical, and problem-solving skills. However, employer surveys and industry and government reports have raised concerns that the nation may not have an adequate supply of skilled technical workers to achieve its competitiveness and economic growth objectives. In response to the broader need for policy information and advice, Building America's Skilled Technical Workforce examines the coverage, effectiveness, flexibility, and coordination of the policies and various programs that prepare Americans for skilled technical jobs. This report provides action-oriented recommendations for improving the American system of technical education, training, and certification.

A roadmap for how we can rebuild America's working class by transforming workforce education and training. The American dream promised that if you worked hard, you could move up, with well-paying working-class jobs providing a gateway to an ever-growing middle class. Today, however, we have increasing inequality, not economic convergence. Technological advances are putting quality jobs out of reach for workers who lack the proper skills and training. In Workforce Education, William Bonvillian and Sanjay Sarma offer a roadmap for rebuilding America's working class. They argue that we need to train more workers more quickly, and they describe innovative methods of workforce education that are being developed across the country.

Building a Digital Workforce Raising technological skills in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

A digital divide, a chasm between those with access to technology and training, particularly workplace information technology (IT) skills and those without, threatens the economic prosperity of American workers and America's competitiveness. The most effective way to reduce digital disparities is to improve the education and training of the existing workforce. In response to challenges to America's continuing competitiveness, productivity, and workforce employability, the Digital Economic Opportunity Committee (DEOC) was formed to expand the digital workforce by identifying ways to broaden the base of workers with technical skills and to raise the technical skills of the existing workforce. DEOC defined IT workers and found that, in effect, virtually every worker in the new economy is an IT worker or an IT-enabled worker (uses computers to perform job functions). It viewed the issue as a skills gap, not a worker shortage. DEOC believed the appropriate response to this skills gap is two-fold. The first was upgrading existing worker skills through training. Issues were basic training needs, capacity, funding, and responsibility for training. DEOC's solutions for building a digital workforce were to identify skill sets needed for each IT job category, along with principal paths to job entry and for job advancement, and to define a lifelong learning system. (Appendixes include 22 notes and a summary of the Committee's Boston Conference on June 27, 2001.) (YLB).

Entering the skilled technical workforce after college in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

By 2017, about 6 years after college entry, 58 percent of 2011–12 beginning postsecondary students were working and not in school and, among these workers, 9 percent held skilled technical workforce (STW) jobs that required high-level technical expertise but not a bachelor’s degree. Seventeen percent of male workers in the cohort held STW jobs compared with 4 percent of female workers. Compared with workers in skilled professional workforce (SPW) jobs, which require high-level technical expertise and a bachelor’s degree, proportionally more workers in STW jobs were Hispanic, from low-income backgrounds, and had parents who did not have college education. The median salary for workers in STW jobs was $35,900, which was higher than the median salary for all workers ($28,000) and for those in nontechnical jobs ($25,000). STW workers’ salaries did not vary with socioeconomic indicators like family income and parental education. Compared with workers in nontechnical jobs (75 percent of the study sample), STW workers were more likely to be offered a variety of workforce benefits, to work in jobs related to their college majors or in their career paths, and to be satisfied with their jobs.

The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science is among the world's premier supporters of basic research. The Office of Science enables the U.S. to maintain its competitive edge by funding science that can transform its energy future, supports its national security and seeks to understand the fundamentals of matter and energy itself. To do this the Department of Energy, and the Nation as a whole, need extraordinary scientific and technical talent on a scale to match the competitor countries. However, the Nation's ability to create sufficient talent has eroded. The National Academy of Sciences' "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" report confirms the vital role that a highly skilled technical workforce plays in an innovation economy such as the United States', but warns that the U.S. has not done enough to prepare the next generation of technical workers for careers in the new global economy. The Office of Science is prepared to help address this challenge. Each year, hundreds of thousands of students of all ages--from kindergarten to mid-career scientists--have participated in the educational and workforce development programs sponsored at laboratories. These students could become the core of the Nation's future technical workforce. However, a coherent, overarching strategy is necessary to maximize the efficiency and impact of programs. The strategic plan presented in this document provides this overarching strategy. Four primary strategic areas have emerged from the planning process. Each area focuses on a different part of workforce development: educators, students, workers, and the building of program capacity. Individual sections contain footnotes.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) has become a vibrant source of workforce development across the globe. It is no longer an offering only for a specialized sector of students. Instead, it has matured into a sound and meaningful program for high school and postsecondary students across interest areas, and abilities. CTE programs and students realize the great relevancy of the programs to workplace and higher education readiness and immediate earning power. This volume addresses the changing needs of foundation courses in CTE. As land grant universities began to offer courses to cover the historical, social and philosophical aspects of CTE, teaching institutions have followed suit. Therefore, readers will find not only a rich background in history and philosophy of the field, but also theory, best practice, and strategies specifically grounded in CTE. As scholars and practitioners argue whether human resource development (HRD) encompasses CTE or vice versa in the field, this text proves that HRD is an integral component and thrust of CTE. As a broad field of study, CTE has come a long way and its history parallels the efforts of humanity from the Stone Age to modern civilization. Building Workforce Competencies through CTE proves that CTE survived, and thrives. The more we realize how pervasive technology and information skills are needed in our society, the more we need CTE. CTE is a leader in innovative educational programs, pedagogical theory and practice; it prepares people, young and old, for the world of work. This book provides a practical and visionary basis for cultivating future opportunities and directions in CTE.
