The Department of Education recently announced a review of Levels 4 and 5 technical education. This review comes at a time when policymakers and employers are complaining about the shortfall of skilled workers in technical areas. It has been estimated that only 10% of adult UK citizens hold a stand-alone Level 4 or 5 qualification. But what are the options for students in this situation? We consider the views of teachers in this context. Let’s look at the options and their respective benefits.
For a technical worker to be technically skilled, he or she must study chemistry, physics, electronics, and engineering. He or she must also learn mathematics, as well as other applied sciences. This growth in technology has increased the demand for skilled workers in this area, and the demand is only expected to continue increasing vertically. Therefore, a great technical education is an investment in the future of a country. In addition, a good technical education fosters development.
Students who complete career and technical education programs are more likely to find employment and stay in that field. In addition, they’re less likely to engage in drug use, gangs, and crime. They’re also less likely to migrate for opportunities. A recent study showed that a high percentage of youth who completed a career or trade school program tended to be employed. This was a significant achievement. And, thanks to the increased demand for skilled workers, the economy is growing.
