    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).

          Not at all! It’s made me rather a popular bedfellow, if you must know.

      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.

      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.
