Recently, ACTE updated its Sector Sheet on CTE’s role in developing the arts, media and entertainment (AME) workforce with the latest labor market projections, how CTE prepares the workforce for this sector, and examples of exemplary programs in AME.
The U.S. AME industry is the largest AME market in the world and is growing rapidly in states across the nation. Nationwide, employment in AME is projected to grow faster than average and will add almost 290,000 new jobs by 2030. The fastest-growing occupations in this field include jobs for film and video editors and camera operators as well as jobs for actors. Accelerating interest in digital media and the expanding gaming industry will fuel demand for occupations like special effects artists and animators.
