Teaching. Teachers really deserve more attention, respect, and above all, better pay. We owe so much to our teachers. I personally have learned and gained so much from having good teachers. We wouldn't have any of the other hardly any other professions without teachers.
Childcare providers. They care for children during one of the most important periods of brain development and can have a lifelong effect on a child's future. (A very good reason to have a well educated provider.)
Speaking for the UK, I would say Nursing. It's a disgrace how they are underpaid and over-worked. Similarly, home-helps and carers are not even regarded as a profession. It's a mystery to me why an administrator on a hospital ward gets paid more than a nurse. Nobody ever had their wounds healed or helped to the bathroom by someone sitting at a computer screen.
