Vocational training (preparing students for specific jobs) needs much more attention than we have been giving it. Here I’ve compiled (and will keep adding) information and links to articles that discuss the topic. If, after doing your own research, you believe that rather than just a general education we MUST provide pathways for students to pursue their interests, passions and desires then raise your voice!
In this article the author shares his view of where jobs will be:

Will YOUR job still exist in 2025? New report warns 50 per cent of occupations will be redundant in 11 years time. Here is the link to the article with a chart they supplied: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2826463/CBRE-report-warns-50-cent-occupations-redundant-20-years-time.html
Shouldn’t we be looking ahead and making sure our education meets the needs of the future?
