Grants For School – The US Education Department Offers TEACH Grants For Your Education

The College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 led Congress to make the Teach Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant Program (TEACH), providing potential future teachers with $4,000 each year in grants in order to pay for their education, particularly if they come from a family with not much income. Wen you want to find out more about the TEACH Grant Program, you just have to check out your college’s financial aid office, as they can help you get started on your journey.

When you get a TEACH Grant, it is with the proviso that you have to start work as a full-time teacher, educating low income students at a public or private secondary school or elementary. After your TEACH Grant is awarded, you have to teach around four years in the next eight years after you finish your degree that you got through the TEACH Grant. You have to keep in mind that, if you do not get this service obligation met within the allotted time, it will switch to a federal unsubsidized Stafford loan. You will then have to repay your grant to the Department of Education. You will also have to pay the back interest from the disbursement date.

If you want to get a TEACH Grant, you have to qualify on the following grounds:

Fill out your FAFSA form, though you do not require it in order to prove your financial need.
Have a status as a US citizen.
Enroll yourself in any part of the higher education process, given that you have an appropriate school that works with the TEACH program.
Take a course of study that will lead you to the classes needed to have a teaching career. Provided your preferred field of teaching, you have to take courses that will facilitate your ability to educate there.
Maintain a GPA of 3.25 or higher, or otherwise meet the requirements that are given to you by the school in order to keep in good standing.
Get your TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve signed.

You can get TEACH Grants in such high need fields as English Language Acquisition, Foreign Language, Reading Specialist, Science, Special Education, Bilingual Education, Mathematics, and many more fields of study that have shortages of qualified teachers in the nation when you get the grant.

If you are working in a low income school, you will know if it is listen in the Annual Directory of Designated Low-Income Schools for Teacher Cancellation Benefits created by the Department of Education. The tcll.ed.gov Website is a great place to find this Directory.

You have to sign your TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve each year that you get the grant; you can use the Department of Education Website to find this agreement each time. In the TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve, you can find the conditions that you have to meet in order to get the grant, as well as what you need to qualify for teaching service; this can include saying that you recognize that you consent to having the TEACH Grant switched to an unsubsidized federal loan in the event that you do not get a teaching job in the right time period.

Part 1 – Where the Jobs Are – How to Take Advantage of Current Trends

This is the first in a multi-part series about jobs that are available today as we transition to a greener lifestyle. We’ll start the series with a brief discussion of overall job trends and then look at opportunities to start a green business or get a green job.

As I listen to the pundits talk about the rising unemployment rate, I figure some of us might need to “reinvent” ourselves in this new green economy. As I’ve said many times, we’re in a transition phase and many sectors of the economy may not be as robust and able to support as many workers as they might have in the past. Surely green businesses need PR people, accountants, administrative assistants etc. like any other business. The outlook is promising. There’s a lot more going on at the state level than we’re hearing about in the general media. In each article in the series, you’ll be able to access a directory of resources that will help you locate loans, grants, trade organizations and state agencies that can help you locate this emerging source of green jobs and new business opportunities for you daring entrepreneurs out there.

The Job Outlook from Now to 2016

As of November, the Department of Labor (DOL) reported the nation’s unemployment rate at 9.7%. The DOL’s, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reviews employment trends as they emerge due to declining industries, new growth and attrition created by retirees. BLS refers to this attrition or ‘Net Replacement’ trends meaning those job openings generated due to the necessity of replacing workers who permanently leave an occupation. In states with double-digit unemployment, the combination of declining manufacturing sector and large numbers of baby boomers about to retire, present opportunities for the unemployed to transfer their existing skills into new energy industries.

Population Trends & Their Impact on Where Jobs Are Going

In their report, “Employment: 2006 – 2016: Occupational Employment Projections to 2016”, BLS Economists Ann Dohm and Lynn Shniper report that the segment of our population 55 years or older will increase by 2.7% annually between now and 2016, reaching 87 million by 2016. Compare that growth to the segment 16 years or older which will experience an estimated annual growth rate of 0.9%, growing from 229 to 251 million by 2016. Despite the difference in the total number of people in each population group, those 55 years or older are expected to be the fastest growing segment of the population between now and 2016. These two trends identify educational and job training opportunities and where to find new jobs needed to replace retired workers who have left the work force. In this article, we’ll talk about the top 3 fastest growing job categories.

Industry Trends

BLS estimates that manufacturing and production jobs in general will decline over the next decade, a loss of roughly 500,000 jobs. Besides the obvious economic conditions, the decline is due in part to technology improvements and imports produced at reduced labor costs. Other industry sectors expected to decline are farming, fishing and forestry, a loss of 29,000 jobs. The fastest growing industry sectors are health care and social services, professional occupations such as business management, financial services, and scientific and technical services. 493,000 new jobs will be created in these industries including:

Fastest Growing Occupational Groups – (BLS 10 Major Occupational Groups)

Overview of Fastest Jobs Occupational Group Code Percent Growth

Service Occupations 31,33,35,37,39 – 16.7%
Professional & Related 15,17,19,21,23,24,25,27,29 – 16.7%
Management, Business & Financial Occupations – All Industries 11,12,13 – 10.4%
Construction & Extraction 47 – 9.5%
Installation, Maintenance & Repair 49 – 9.3%
Sales & Related Occupations 41 – 7.6%
Office & Administrative Support 43 – 7.2%
Transportation & Material Moving 53 – 4.5%

Declining Occupational Groups

Production Occupations 51 – -4.9%
Farming, Fishing, & Forestry 45 – -2.8%

Service Occupations include those jobs that make people’s jobs easier, safer and more pleasurable. Also as the population ages, there will be more of a demand to help the elderly stay in their homes or residential housing. Dohm and Shniper estimate that 4.8 million jobs will be created in the Service sector between now and 2016. My concern is that though some of the jobs in the Service Occupation category, like Home Health Aids are important and are in high demand they pay very little. Keep in mind that the occupational table above includes “job families” so there are many different occupations included within family. For example, a portion of the jobs listed in the Service occupations category include:

31-1011.00 Home Health Aides
31-1012.00 Nursing Aides, Orderlies, and Attendants
31-1013.00 Psychiatric Aides
31-2011.00 Occupational Therapist Assistants
31-2012.00 Occupational Therapist Aides
31-2021.00 Physical Therapist Assistants
31-2022.00 Physical Therapist Aides
31-9011.00 Massage Therapists
31-9091.00 Dental Assistants
31-9092.00 Medical Assistants
31-9093.00 Medical Equipment Preparers
31-9094.00 Medical Transcriptionists
31-9095.00 Pharmacy Aides
31-9096.00 Veterinary Assistants and Laboratory Animal Caretakers
31-9099.99 Healthcare Support Workers, All Other

The list above comes from a great DOL tool paid for by your tax dollars called ‘ONET, Occupational Information Network’. It’s a huge database of job information that includes the demand for a given occupation, salary information, education, and skills requirements. Use the occupational group codes in the table above to do an ‘Occupation Quick Search’ and press GO. You’ll get a listing of occupations within that job family or category. You can also do an ‘Occupation Quick Search’ using the full occupational code – for example, enter 31-9099 and you’ll see information in the ‘Healthcare Support Works, All other’ category. Other searches include “Find Occupation” and “Skills Search”. It really is a ‘one-stop-shop’ because this federal job site links to your state’s job center where you can find jobs in that category according to zip code. Median salary and educational requirements for the job are listed for each occupational job entry – very cool! This is a great tool not only for job-seekers, but also for Human Resources professionals or business owners who need to write position descriptions for employees.

Professional & Related Occupations

The second fastest category of jobs is Professional & Related Occupations.

Fastest Growing Occupational Groups – (BLS 10 Major Occupational Groups)
Professional & Related Occupations Occupational Group Code Percent Growth
Computer & Mathematical Science 15 – 24.8%
Community & Social Services 21 – 22.7%
Health care practitioners 29 – 19.8%
Life, Physical & Social Science 19 – 14.4%
Education, training and library 25 – 14%
Legal 23 – 11.8%
Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports & Media 27 – 11.4%
Architecture & Engineering 17 – 10.3%

Health Care

According to the BLS, 5 million jobs will be created in the Professional & Related Occupations category. The need for health care and social services in the 55 years-and-older group will create a demand for 1.7 million jobs in the health care and social services job groups. Another 1.1 million will be created in public and private education and 1 million in professional, scientific and technical services. Not surprisingly, in the health care sector, there is still a strong need for Registered Nurses, which the BLS estimates will add 587,800 new jobs. Technology advances in the medical field will create a need for workers trained in new medical procedures. Another interesting trend in the health care industry is toward having technicians perform more of the routine procedures formerly performed by licensed practitioners under supervision. The growth of Registered Nurses and Physician Assistants is expected to exceed growth of physicians and surgeons.

Education, Arts, Architecture, Sciences, Law

There will continue to be a need for primary, secondary and special education teachers. The need for postsecondary teachers is expected to grow quickly as the population of 18 to 24 years increases and a greater proportion of high school graduates go to college and as more adults attend college for courses in professional development related to their jobs. Computer and Mathematical science jobs will continue to grow adding 822,000 jobs as businesses continue to adopt and refine existing technologies. In the Community and Social Services category, there will still be a need to service the disabled, substance abusers and those in crisis situations. Arts, design, entertainment, sports and media are estimated to add 305,000 jobs and 1 of 5 of those jobs will held in the form of self-employment. Writers, authors, photographers, multi-media animators and artist will be offered work as self-employed workers as more companies purchase services rather hire employees to do the work. Architecture and engineering occupations will experience a similar growth trend due to companies contracting out work. Life, physical, and social scientists are projected to add 203,000 jobs. Many of these jobs will be created in private sector firms that do medical and scientific research. Life Sciences workers will also be needed in the growing ‘green industries’ as the nation focuses more attention on the environment in the coming years. Within the legal professions, BLS projects an increase of 145,000 jobs. Of those, 84,000 of those jobs will be held by lawyers and 53,000 will go to paralegals and legal assistants. There will be a demand for services in the areas of corporate, intellectual property, energy, elder, antitrust and environmental law. Most of the new legal jobs are expected to be in state and local government.

Management, Business & Financial

The Management, business and financial occupational group contains the most variety of jobs across business industries. Jobs within this category are projected to grow by 1.6 million. Roughly 493,000 jobs management, scientific and technical consulting; accounting, tax preparation, bookkeeping, and payroll services. The finance and insurance sector is expected to add 297,000 new jobs.

I’d like to mention two job categories that weren’t listed in the fastest growing group but which will be important in new environmental industries. Based upon my research, in addition to highly technical jobs in the life sciences category, many green jobs will be created in the Transportation & Moving and the Installation, Maintenance and Repair groups. There will be a need for truck drivers that have Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDLs) to transport recycled materials to landfills and within the manufacturing industry for reuse and workers with general mechanical skills to repair and maintain new environmental machinery. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, the Business Management and financial services fields might also provide transferable skills into new green businesses.

The Advantages to a College Degree for Today’s Job Seekers

A college degree is an advantage in today’s workforce. The number and of jobs available for college graduates is much greater and they often have higher salary and benefits.

Availability of Jobs

The number of jobs that require a college degree or where a college education is an advantage is increasing. In previous generations, there were many levels of jobs available for those without a college education or in some cases, even a high school diploma. However now many of these jobs simply do not exist any longer, or now require college education.

Industrial jobs, trades and skilled labor were more prevalent before the rise of computer technology. Now many industries require a smaller workforce because of technological advances. Even though not as many assembly line workers are needed, there are many jobs available in engineering, management and business administration in which a college education is an advantage.

Types of Jobs

The advantages of a college degree in scientific, manufacturing and engineering fields are very strong. College students can now study highly specialized science related degrees that apply directly to business settings. Safety engineering, environmental science and DNA analytics are examples of highly specialized fields that have become in demand in just the past 10 years or so.

One of the advantages of a college education is that students become aware of many subjects and fields that they never would have considered without going to college. Students are required to take a variety of basic education courses such as math, sciences, literature and basic computing. Electives are also required and students may take a course that just sounds interesting or appealing to them. Often students discover during one of these courses that they have a talent and/or passion for a subject and begin to understand its potential in the job marketplace.

While obtaining a specialized degree is necessary in some fields, sometimes just having a college education is an advantage, regardless of the field of study. Employers want to know that their employees have a well rounded basic education. The advantages of a college degree will be proven when your resume is chosen over those who did not make the commitment to complete their education.

Salary & Benefits

The advantage of a college degree equals to higher wages and salaries. In the Winter 2004-05 Occupational Outlook Quarterly, The US Department of Labor reported that “In 2003, workers who had a bachelor’s degree had median weekly earnings of $900, compared with $554 a week for high school graduates–that’s a difference of $346 per week, or a 62 percent jump in median earnings.” These figures are a bold statement that the advantage of a college degree is its increased earning power.

Job seekers will also find that positions that may not actually require a college education will still pay more to those who have a degree. Jobs seekers with a college education will still earn higher salaries, even when the degree is not directly required for the job.

The jobs that do not require a college education often have fewer benefits. These jobs often provide no retirement or health insurance benefits which are imperative to financial security and the stability of the family.

The Advantage of a College Degree: Conclusion

Attending and graduating from college is the best way to prepare for a career that pays well and provides a means to a secure future. If you are determined and hard working, you can complete your education and begin a career that will provide now and pave the way to a secure retirement.
