Skill Matches to Job Requirements. A National Vocational Education and Training Research and Evaluation Program Report
Ryan, Chris; Sinning, Mathias
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
Paying particular attention to older workers, this report examines the relationship between the skills of workers and the skill requirements of the jobs in which they work. The findings show that workers (in all age groups) with higher literacy and numeracy skills tend to use these skills more often than those with lower skill levels. Additionally, older workers used their skills in the workplace at least as much as younger workers, suggesting that they are not moving into less demanding jobs. (Contains 5 footnotes, 9 tables and 7 figures.) [Funding for this paper is provided through the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
