Where are the jobs of the future?

A report titled Future job openings for new entrants by industry and occupation by Chandra Shah and Janine Dixon was published by NCVER yesterday.

This report provides forecasts of job openings for new entrants to the Australian labour market by occupation and industry for the period 2017 to 2024. Job openings in an occupation are a result of growth in the occupation and the need to replace workers retiring from, or permanently leaving, the occupation. The forecasts provide job seekers, students and career advisors with information on future job opportunities, and helps them to make informed choices about which education and training courses to undertake. Policymakers may use the forecasts for long-term planning in education and training and workforce development.

Of particular interest to us in SoE are predictions of growth in preschool and school education as well as predicted increase in the need for tertiary educators as a result of international student expansion.
