NACE 2002 - 80 Education

Employment in the education sector is likely to grow in years to come. The number of jobs in education as a proportion of total employment is somewhat lower than in EU-15 (5.9% vs. 6.9%). Thanks to an expected increase in the level of available financial resources for schools and educational institutions (due to changes in the national budget and resources from European funds) the Czech Republic can come close to the average for developed European economies in this respect.

There will be various factors that will support the demand side. One of them will be a growing interest in more advanced (particularly tertiary) education where the number of students and graduates is expected to increase in the following years. At the same time, there will be an increasing demand for continuing education and training, and the number of institutions providing courses aimed at enhancing learners’ qualifications will rise. The absolute employment figures will go up to nearly 304 thousand people by 2020. This will account for 6.4% of total employment.

The demand for various qualifications and skills will also change. Until 2012 there will be an increase in the total number of graduates. This will particularly concern tertiary education graduates. The number of graduates of vocational courses without “maturita” will dwindle, which will be reflected in the professional requirements for teachers. At the same time, demand for teachers at pre-school and primary level will grow, as children of the very strong age cohorts from the 1970s will enter the education system.

The trend consisting in an overall increase in demand for initial education teachers will change in about 5-6 years’ time. At the same time, the scope and capacity of courses focusing on adult education should grow. Demand for teachers of languages, ICT and soft skills will increase over the long term. The same is expected for teachers of technical and science subjects in tertiary education, as this area will receive robust support from the government as part of measures to boost science, research and innovation.
