Education and Training

30 of them and 1 of you!

Industry Overview

The career cluster that is tasked with imparting knowledge to others is known as the Education and Training career cluster. Most of the jobs associated with this career cluster tend to involve working in schools of varying levels, but the cluster also includes those who facilitate training in a business atmosphere, and those who coach and train athletes. These career pathways often require a higher level of education, as most teachers require at least a four-year college degree. Instructors and professors at the college-level require degrees that may take six or even eight years to earn. These career paths not only require a large amount of intellect and education, but they may also require an individual to be very patient and to have very good social skills. These are two skills may be required to successfully cultivate learning by students!
