Many high school students are encouraged to attend a 4-year college or university. However, this traditional route may not be suitable for everyone.
One of the most valuable benefits of attending a trade or vocational school is the emphasis on in-demand, high paying careers that can also offer mentally engaging tasks, providing a real sense of pride, achievement, and accomplishment. Also, trades and apprenticeships usually take less time and money to complete. After finishing vocational courses, college classes or training, students obtain a
certification that allows them to pursue a job in that field.
“When you look at the types of wages that apprenticeships and other career areas pay, and the fact that you do not pay four years of tuition and you’re paid while you learn, these other paths really need some additional consideration,” says Chris Cortines of the Washington State Auditor’s Office.
In 2021 Congress passed a $1.2 trillion federal infrastructure plan that would create 1.5 million construction jobs per year for the next 10 years. However, 90 percent of construction companies nationwide are still having a difficult time finding qualified workers. As a result, a shortage of workers pushes wages higher in the skilled trades.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a need for workers in these careers will increase due to more people requiring the services of the trade. Over the next decade the need for more skilled workers will range from 4% to 30%.
