A Ranking of High Demand Occupations Appropriate for Secondary Vocational Education.
Parsons, Don; Borcher, Sid
The Arizona Center for Vocational Education was mandated to provide the State Board for Vocational and Technical Education with an annual list of high demand occupations ranked according to a job opportunity factor that takes into consideration both supply and demand for workers in that occupation. The list was to indicate which occupations were appropriate for training at the 11th and 12th grades. The Center was also charged with determining a cost factor for each of the occupations on the list. A study identified 38 Program Delivery Units (PDUs), each of which represented a group of occupations that required a similar facility with similar types of equipment and similarly qualified instructors to train for each of the occupations in the cluster. (Tables in this report rank PDUs according to allocated demand; demand minus community college and private school supply; and demand minus high school, community college, and private school supply. PDU cost factors are illustrated in another table. An appendix contains 38 charts that indicate Occupational Employment Service job titles ranked on demand by PDU.) (YLB)
