Overview of the technical and vocational education (TVE) market in North America

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the technical and vocational education (TVE) market in North America to grow at a CAGR of more than 4% by 2020.  The market is witnessing the use of several advanced technologies for content creation and delivery methods, which in turn enables efficient collaboration among trainers and learners. With the high penetration of the Internet, students are availing various online training methods like mobile learning, gamification, and blended learning. Many training solution providers are also developing mobile applications that can be used for self-paced learning. Also, vendors are making use of simulations and online collaboration tools to deliver vocational skilling courses to students through e-learning platforms. The growing demand for candidates with specialized skills and relevant qualifications will boost the demand for TVE in North America in the coming years.

As per the National Skills Coalition of the US study, over 52% of job vacancies until ­2020 are estimated to be in the middle­-skill areas, which require TVE instead of conventional education such as high school diplomas or bachelor’s degree. As these middle-class jobs are essential for North America’s infrastructural development and overall economic growth, their demand is high among the educated and degree-holding millennials who are facing unemployment. Moreover, as several aspirants are also getting into private training institutes to acquire specialized training and skills, the growth prospects for this market will have a positive outlook until the end of 2020.
