  2. 2. Labor Market Information (LMI) <ul><li>Overview </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Occupations with Largest number of Openings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Nationally > Regionally </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Drill-Down: Subsets of Interest for Educators </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sources of Data & what’s not here… </li></ul><ul><li>There is a test!

  3. 3. Data: What’s here & what isn’t <ul><li>Occupational Outlook is most often provided in one of three measures: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Growth - % growth over time. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of Openings – The number of anticipated jobs over time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“In Demand” occupations – Categories of Occupations that combine growth and number of openings </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Truth, Lies & Statistics… <ul><li>Growth – High growth jobs do not always have a high number of openings (going from 2 to 4 jobs in the state is 100% growth right?) </li></ul><ul><li>Number of Openings – A large number of openings does not automatically mean high growth particularly when an occupation already contains a large number of positions. </li></ul><ul><li>In-demand – These categories are important to understand as they are used by some funding sources, but they are really a “hybrid” of Growth and number of openings. NYSDOL in-demand categories are explained at: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.labor.ny.gov/stats/lstechdesc.shtm </li></ul>
  5. 5. Type of information provided here <ul><li>This presentation uses data on the number of openings nationally and regionally (sources throughout and on last slide) because: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It is intended for you as regional continuing education program providers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of openings can be used to assess capacity-building issues. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Responding to these issues provides an opportunity to have significant impact on the economic success of the region. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. LMI Top 30 Challenge <ul><li>Working together, please answer the questions that follow. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Points will be awarded </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Points can not be redeemed for anything whatsoever, but of course... </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More points are better </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Good luck! </li></ul></ul>

  21. 21. O*NET is a National Database of Information on over 900 Occupations Nationally… O*NET Content Model via http:// www.onetcenter.org/content.html The O*NET occupational database includes extensive information on most current and emerging occupations in the U.S. Each occupation contains information organized as follows:
  22. 22. With adults changing careers at ever-accelerating rates, what skills will serve them for life in these higher paying occupations with the larger number of openings? O*NET Content Model via http:// www.onetcenter.org/content.html <ul><li>The element of the O*NET model circled represents the worker characteristics that can generally be: </li></ul><ul><li>Influenced through training (i.e. not “fixed traits”) </li></ul><ul><li>Transferred across occupations (i.e. not “job specific”) </li></ul>
  23. 23. These O*NET skills are in two groups O*NET Content Model via http://www.onetcenter.org/content.html 10 Basic Skills And 25 Cross-functional Skills
  24. 24. For every occupation in O*NET, the importance of 10 Basic Skills is ranked on a scale from 1 to 5. O*NET Content Model via http://www.onetcenter.org/content.html The 10 Basic Skills are: <ul><li>Active Learning </li></ul><ul><li>Active Listening </li></ul><ul><li>Critical Thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Mathematics </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring </li></ul><ul><li>Reading Comprehension </li></ul><ul><li>Science </li></ul><ul><li>Speaking </li></ul><ul><li>Writing </li></ul>
  25. 25. Question… Ranking the 10 Basic skills from most important to least important, what do you think the top skills are for those 30 occupations paying above median in our region?
  26. 26. Here are the importance rankings of basic skills for the 30 top paying occupations with most openings regionally O*NET ® 14.0 Database - National Center for O*NET Development Top Three: Active Listening Reading Comprehension Speaking The rest, in order of importance: Critical Thinking Active Learning Writing Monitoring Learning Strategies Mathematics Science
  27. 27. The importance of 25 Cross-Functional Skills is also rated in O*NET. The 25 cross-functional skills are : O*NET Content Model via http://www.onetcenter.org/content.html Complex Problem Solving Coordination Equipment Maintenance Equipment Selection Installation Instructing Judgment and Decision Making Management of Financial Resources Management of Material Resources Management of Personnel Resources Negotiation Operation and Control Operation Monitoring Operations Analysis Persuasion Programming Quality Control Analysis Repairing Service Orientation Social Perceptiveness Systems Analysis Systems Evaluation Technology Design Time Management Troubleshooting

  30. 30. Implications for Program Development Adults will typically change occupations every 3-4 years. How can “content-centric” programs prepare learners for these ever-changing changes? How can knowledge of these high-importance transferable skills shape program development? Program design? Program delivery? How do programs assess learner success in these cross-functional areas?
