The relationship between job requirements, individual skills and the participation of workers in further education and training, with an emphasis on older workers, is the focus of this report. It found that workers who reported that their jobs are demanding relative to their skills were more likely to participate in education and training. Participation in further education and training was lower for older workers compared with younger workers, although it still increased as relative skills use increased. (Contains 8 footnotes, 8 tables, and 8 figures.) [Funding is provided through the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
