Jobs training is now more important than in any point in history, thanks to increasing demand for skilled workers in the region.
Employers in the region will add more than 7,500 new middle-skill jobs by 2019, according to a report released this week by the Workforce Intelligence Network.
These new skilled jobs come at the behest of low-skilled jobs that require no post-secondary training or education, the report said. The number of jobs that require no post-secondary training will drop by more than 18,000, while 37 percent of total jobs growth comes in the middle-skill category.
Comparatively, 38 percent of new jobs growth will require a bachelor’s degree or higher.
