Being skilled in the trades can lead to many career opportunities as there is a shortage of tradespeople.
While vocational education enrollment dipped in the 1980s and 1990s, it has risen in recent decades due to the many fields that are growing without requiring a traditional four-year degree, such as infrastructure and manufacturing. As more jobs open in the trades, the next generation of workers needs to be supported throughout their education.
