Skills are acquired in various ways not just formal education so this is crap. Having an degree doesn’t mean you have particular set of skills it means you paid your fees to the college. (I have two degrees).
“I will find you” said the recruitment agent, “and I will kill… to get you the right job”
Why do we assume that only degree = skills?
Some skills can only be learned practically.
So those years of debauchery weren’t wasted after all?
Not at all! It’s made me rather a popular bedfellow, if you must know.
Do go on, Milly…
Aye, and by good teachers / trainers. Nothing to do with academics.
Honours Arts Degree, 4 Languages, Business Diploma – working in Engineering for 15 years…willingness to adapt and learn is far more useful than purely a degree, and having an interest. is half the battle. The current inexplicable push to privatise 3rd level education will eventually cheapen it’s already falling standards to the point of uselessness.
The American system is a prime example of that eventuality….
H. Dip and a B.a., with 14 years behind me. Couldn’t get a yoith/community job
Can anyone explain what damning indictment of the capitalist system BS would like us to take from this?
It can certainly have a negative effect on mental health so let’s not get too sniffy about a simple infographic
If you go with their premise that skills=education, isn’t this more a measure of people who have less than or more than the required skills for their job?
It’s not even that useful. It’s a measure of the level of education (in four bands: None to Junior Cert, Junior Cert to post-secondary, tertiary) of the *average* worker in a particular occupation. It tells us nothing about *required* skills.
I wonder how they even compile such stats?
