For the 2012-2014 period, job opportunities in Chaudiere-Appalaches are expected to be fair for this occupation. Because the workforce is aging in this profession, most of opportunities will come from the need to replace staff who retire. According to 2006 census data, employees aged 55 and over represent 22% of the workforce, compared to 15% for the average of all occupations.
Also according to Census data, most teachers at the college level and in vocational schools operating in the educational services sector (75%). They are also found, but in a less significant proportion, in the manufacturing sector (6%) and in the finance and insurance industry (6%).
The growing popularity of technical training with both employers and students will slightly boost the hiring of college and other vocational instructors. The employment outlook is also contingent upon the regions changing demographics. The Chutes-de-la-Chaudière, Desjardins and Beauce-Sartigan MRCs have the strongest concentration of young people in the Chaudière-Appalaches region as opposed to the De L'Amiante and Etchemins MRCs where the number of young people is smaller.
