Employment Profile of Persons With Post-Secondary Qualifications
This report examines the employment profiles of those with qualifications beyond the Leaving Certificate in Ireland. The focus is on individuals whose highest educational attainment is at post-secondary level qualification, either at FET (NFQ 4-6) or third level. As such this analysis excludes upper secondary or equivalent education, even when completed through second chance opportunities in the FET sector.
The primary aim of this report is to establish the number of persons aged 15-64 years in Ireland who held FET or third level qualifications, their levels of employment and the extent to which patterns in employment differ depending on a person’s education level and field.
