The incidence and wage effects of overskilling among employed VET graduates /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | McGuinness, Seamus | King Fok, Yin.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 31 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: When the skills workers have do not match the skills that jobs require, a number of negative labour market outcomes can occur, including productivity and efficiency losses, lowered earnings and reduced job satisfaction. Using data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey, this study examines the degree of job mismatch experienced by workers. The mismatch between the perceived skill level of the worker and the skill level of the job is considered as overskilling. The report finds that workers with vocational qualifications, particularly at the certificate III or IV level, are less likely to experience overskilling.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Skilling and reskilling for our (greener) future /

by Karmel, Tom | National Centre for Vocational Resource.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Research 2010Description: 17 p. : ill. tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented to the 2009 Economic and Social Outlook Conference, University of Melbourne, 5?6 November 2009Summary: This paper was presented at the Economic and Social Outlook Conference, 5/6 November 2009, ; at the University of Melbourne. It takes a sceptical view of the push for 'green skills', arguing that skills required in the labour market evolve relatively slowly, and that the way business operates is driven by changing costs, new technologies and new regulations, with sustainability being only one of many factors. In addition, the presentation provides some data on 'sustainable' courses in tertiary education and then looks at three areas which have implications for the public investment in education and training: the levels of skill acquired through apprenticeships and traineeships, the pay-off to undertaking VET qualifications, and the role of diplomas in the labour market.Availability: (1)

Skill (mis-)matches and over-education of younger workers /

by Ryan, Chris | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Sinning, Mathias.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 37Summary: Younger workers, particularly those entering the workforce at ages 25 to 34 years of age, are more highly educated than ever before. This study investigates the extent of over-education among younger workers. It also explores the relationship between education and skills mismatch in the workforce. The research shows that most over-skilled workers have low levels of education and require fewer skills at work than they actually have. The majority of under-skilled workers, however, hold a university degree, suggesting that many highly educated workers have jobs that require more skills than they actually seem to possess.Availability: (1)

Over-skilling and job satisfaction in the Australian labour force /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | McGuinness, Seamus | Richardson, Sue.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes references Appendices : p. 45-54 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Finding yourself in a job that does not match your skills or education level can be detrimental in a number of ways. Using data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey, this study builds on previous work by looking at the impact of being over-skilled or over-educated or both on an individual's wages as well as their level of job satisfaction. The study distinguishes between 'genuine' mismatch (wages and job satisfaction are both low) and 'apparent' mismatch - where a job may pay less but has been accepted because it has some other redeeming attribute, such as greater flexibility of work hours. The study finds that mismatch is often characterised by both lower wages and job satisfaction.Availability: (1)

Occupation-education mismatch of immigrant workers in Europe: context and policies /

by Aleksynska, Mariya | Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations nternationales | Tritah, Ahmed.

Publisher: Paris, France Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations Internationales (CEPII) 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2011 Bibliography : p. 25-30 Appendices: p. 34-37Summary: This paper analyses occupational matching of immigrants from over seventy countries of origin to 22 European countries. Using European Social Survey for the years 2002-2009 and the multinomial logit framework, we show that, relative to the native born, immigrants are more likely to be both under- and overeducated for the jobs that they perform. This mismatch is due to individual-specific factors, such as labor market experience and its transferability. Immigrants' outcomes converge to those of the native born with the years of labor market experience. The mismatch is also due to immigrants' selection and sorting across countries. Notably, we show that origin countries' degree of income inequality and the quality of human capital, by affecting selection, mostly matter for undereducation of immigrants. Overeducation is determined to a greater extent by destination-country economic conditions and labor market institutions. Immigrant-specific policies in destination countries, such as those improving eligibility and fighting discrimination, also positively affect overall matching, while policies promoting integration decrease undereducation.Availability: (1)

Rethinking skills in vocational education and training : from competencies to capabilities /

by New South Wales. Department of Education and Communities.

Publisher: [Sydney, N.S.W.?] New South Wales. Department of Education and Communities 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Governments around the world are concerned with skill development, skill shortages, and skills mismatches. As with many other countries, Australia is seeking to increase its "stock" of skills because they are considered intrinsic to innovation, competitiveness and productivity. Skills are also considered intrinsic to social inclusion as those without skill are marginalised from work, experience lower levels of health and well-being, and have less capacity to shape the major developments in their lives. However, while there is general agreement that skills are important, there is less clarity on the nature of skill, the kinds of skills we need and how they should be developed.Availability: (1)

Vocational qualifications, employment status and income : 2006 census analysis /

by Daly, Anne | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Two features of the labour market for vocationally qualified workers are explored in this technical paper: the likelihood of self-employment versus wage employment and the determinants of income. The analysis showed that demographic, occupational and local labour market characteristics all influence the likelihood of self-employment. Self-employed people were more likely to be older, married and born in a non-English speaking country. High self-employment was found for managers, males in construction and female hospitality managers. Generally, employees were shown to earn more than self-employed workers, suggesting that the self-employed are willing to sacrifice monetary income for other perceived benefits of self-employment.Availability: (1)

The persistence of overskilling and its effects on wages /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Mahuteau, St phane | Sloane, Peter | Wei, Zhang.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references Includes appendicesSummary: Research has shown that overskilling 'where workers are not fully using their skills in their jobs' can lead to reduced wages and job satisfaction. This report builds on that previous research and investigates the persistence of overskilling mismatch and the effect of past mismatch on wages. The research finds that persistence of overskilling mismatch is common among those who have been overskilled in the past and is highest among those who did not finish high school and VET diploma graduates. It was lowest among university graduates. However, the wages of university graduates are significantly reduced by past overskilling, more so than for those in any other education level.Availability: (1)
