Local Employment Potential Information
|Location||Employment Potential||Release Date|
For the 2012-2014 period, the employment outlook for this occupational group in the Montérégie region is fair. Employment levels are high, and labour will be in fair demand. Openings will arise from a need to replace a relatively large number of retiring secondary school teachers.
Virtually all the members of this occupational group work in the secondary education sector. Based on the breakdown of student enrolment, an estimated 15% to 20% of them work in the private sector.
Employment in the educational services industry is closely linked to changes in student enrolment. Given the expected decrease in enrolment over the next few years, the number of secondary school teachers should drop slightly.
The labour market situation for those graduating with a bachelor's degree in secondary education is excellent and should remain so over the next few years. However, if the number of people with a bachelor's in secondary education does not decrease significantly, the labour market situation for those people will deteriorate substantially.
