A Place for Middle Skills

Community colleges are the nation’s largest providers of middle skills training and education. In general, middle skills jobs pay middle class wages and students can obtain necessary credentials or complete training in months rather than years.

“Middle skill” jobs require some training and education after high school, but not a 4-year degree.  Fundamental shifts in technology and globalization have changed the skill sets employers require. This shift has increased demand for workers with middle skills, and significantly decreased demand for workers with no credentials beyond high school.
