According to Albuquerque Business First, middle-skills jobs represent more than half of New Mexico job opportunities.

The state is attempting to help people prepare for skills-based jobs. New Mexico received a grant worth $9 million for career and technical education funding in 2019.

Albuquerque Business First reports that the state served more than 62,000 high school students with career and technical education in school year 2016-2017, and more than 56,000 students in post-secondary education.
