Adult and Vocational Education Teachers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 21% of adult and vocational education teachers are self-employed.

About half of all adult and vocational education teachers work for public school systems, universities, and community and junior colleges.

Major employers:

  • Colleges, universities, and other schools
  • Vocational rehabilitation services
  • Child and family service agencies

Outlook

Employment for adult and vocational education teachers can be affected by the economy. As more people attend postsecondary institutions to further their education and gain the skills necessary to meet their career goals, more teachers will be needed. Changes in technology also require that many people return to school for additional education. 

However, reductions in post-secondary school funding may reduce the number of positions available. Increased scrutiny on for-profit schools will also reduce employment for teachers in those schools.

Demand is expected to be very strong for nursing instructors and others who teach skills required for medical assisting and dental assisting occupations.

Part-time teachers are expected to have more job opportunities as many institutions are filling vacancies with part-time rather than full-time positions. Full-time tenure-track positions are limited and very competitive.
