Skill acquisition and use across the life course: current trends, future prospects
AbstractThis report examines the extent to which peopleâ€™s life trajectories are changing and the implications of this change for the VET sector. This sector is significantly more affected by changing life-course patterns than are universities: VET has become the preferred route for older people beginning first qualifications, single parents and others in a whole range of non-standard life pathways. This presents challenges and opportunities for the sector: a challenge to accommodate these students successfully; and an opportunity to contribute new sources of non-traditional skills to the national supply of skilled workers.
