nontraditional careers
Nontraditional Careers
  • An occupation or field of work, including computer science, technology, and other emerging high skill occupations, and
  • For which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in the occupation or field of work.

Two of Eight CTE Core Indicators

Secondary nontraditional participation and completion rates are trending slightly higher, however it may not make any significant changes to the future STEM job force.

STEM occupations have education requirements

that range from

a high school diploma and on-the-job training to a PhD.

Career & Technical Education has technical occupations that are related to:

  • Science
  • Technology
  • Engineering
  • Math
nc s rttt stem objectives
NC’s RttT STEM Objectives
  • Provide new opportunities for students in the lowest-achieving schools and districts to attend schools that will better support their achievement and successful graduation and lead them to college and career readiness.
nc s rttt stem objectives1
NC’s RttT STEM Objectives

To reduce a potentially crippling workforce knowledge gap and to prepare more students – especially those who traditionally have been underrepresented – for STEM careers

present and future job market
Present and Future Job Market

A globally competitive, knowledge-based economy is a fact of life for North Carolina’s high school students – now and for the foreseeable future – STEM skills are critical drivers in that economy.

career opportunities
Career Opportunities

Fields such as biotechnology, software design, aeronautical engineering, and others – will require adaptability, creativity, critical thinking, and technical competence in STEM.

career opportunities1
Career Opportunities
  • Employment in these areas is projected to grow 70 percent faster than growth for other occupations.
  • STEM graduates on average are expected to enjoy better employment prospects and higher starting salaries than graduates in non-STEM fields.

Underrepresented (UR)
  • African Americans account for about 15 percent of the population between ages 20 and 24, however, earn only about 8 percent of science and engineering degrees.
  • The ratio is similar for Hispanics.

We hear that little kids can’t engineer . We say they’re born engineers - they naturally want to solve problems - and the current process tends to educate it out of them.
