E.g. selling high ticket items? Aircon service? Tuition teacher?
Let me see if I can categorise them:-
1) high academic results required - such as lawyers, doctors, professors, MPs,
(usually too late if you in your twenties and not in a good university)
2) manual skilled jobs that pays well per hour
crane operators, forklift operators, special machines operators
3) sales job
insurance advisers, property agents, car salesmen, etc
4) business owners
small medium enterprise owners- learn on how to operate a small business
I see that 1) is usually too late for most of us.
2/3/4 are all still available.
Don't really understand your question of "highly value" skilled jobs - highly valued skilled jobs or high-value skilled jobs? They would mean different things.
If you're talking about more labourous kind of skilled jobs, you'll need a license and they can be high risk (e.g. compromise on health or safety). If you're talking about non-labourous ones, you'll need to be at least educated at the tertiary level on it (e.g. graduated from medical school to be a doctor, law school for a lawyer). Tuition teachers can earn quite a bit of money but in order to be one that can rack in the money, you'll need to be a MOE-certified teacher, meaning you would need to have studied in and graduated from NIE. Studying in NIE comes with a 5-year bond, which you'll need to serve by working as a teacher in a public school.
The money comes with sacrifice, just in which form :p
First- decide what to teach
Then, sign up your name on a couple of tuition websites to increase awareness and with patience and consistency you can earn minimum $40/h, higher if you're more qualified ie. relevant degree in subject you are teaching
Tips: You don't have to be an expert, you just have to be passionate about the subject and it will show in your interaction with the students and parents will be quick to spot tutors who aren't pulling their weight! Once you've built your reputation, you'll be a 'highly valued' tutor and every student or rather the parents will be signing up for your slot! :)
The first job that came to my mind is airtraffic controller. My Friend doesn’t have a degree but works at this job. Quite highly paid too
surgeon? Need steady hands that can do delicate stitching/cutting etc

CEO. Directors. Ministers. Super high value jobs that not anyone can do.
Others will include high risk jobs such as Rope access specialists. High risk, high skill needed. These people need to ensure rope safety as they are accessing high buildings or structures with just ropes. Any mistake results in death.
