Trade schools and technical colleges offer essential education and training for a wide variety of skilled jobs. Providing pathways for job opportunities not served by traditional four-year colleges - at significantly lower cost and in a shorter time frame - these schools are a critical part of developing a diverse workforce across pretty much every industry. GIS Planning is thrilled to now offer trade and technical school data in the talent report in US ZoomProspector applications. Click here to view it live for Metro Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Alpharetta on the Georgia Department of Economic Development website.
You can find this trade school data in both the Property and Community Reports in ZoomProspector. Choose the talent report and you can toggle between universities and technical schools by selecting either Degree or Trades in the report on the left. The schools can be visualized as grey dots on the map on the right (click on any one of the dots to see the name of the school). The number of graduates can be found in the report on the left. Click on any of the principal groupings to expand, listing all the programs in each category. Clicking on the programs will expand the report further, showing the number of graduates for each of the various schools.
Since workforce and talent pools cross geographical boundaries, you can expand all talent reports up to 100 miles from any property, community or pinpoint selected on the map. Trade and technical school data comes from the US Department of Labor. This data can be exported or shared in a wide variety of formats, including Excel, PDF, via email, to social media or as a hyperlink to add to a report, e-newsletter or anything else you need.
The newly added trade and technical school data in ZoomProspector is part of our ongoing commitment to remain the most innovative GIS data software on the market for economic development and corporate site selection. We are proud to be the fastest-growing web tool of this kind - more than 72% of Americans live in territory serviced by our software.
