APSCU: Private Sector Instiutions Prepare the High-Demand Professional for Tomorrow

Private sector institutions prepare students and provide them with relevant skills in high demand career fields. Since 2001, the number of credentials awarded to students attending private sector institutions increased by 165 percent. This means that each year, more and more students are receiving the skills they need to work in high demand fields that boost their earnings potentials.
As seen in the infographic below, private sector institutions award the majority of all allied health and culinary arts credentials earned. Private sector institutions also play a significant role in teaching the skills required to be an electrician or a vehicle maintenance and repair technician.

Private sector institutions provide new traditional students with opportunities to further their educations and obtain skills in career-relevant fields. These new traditional students, who are over the age of 25, have financial dependents, and/or are employed full-time while enrolled, have been vastly underserved by traditional institutions of higher education. Private sector institutions are well equipped to meet the needs of these new traditional students through flexible learning options that public and private nonprofit institutions typically do not provide.

In the infographic below, you can see that private sector institutions are increasingly preparing the high-demand professionals of tomorrow.
