Costly to miss out on higher ed­u­ca­tion

The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page -

WORK­ERS who don’t fur­ther their ed­u­ca­tion be­yond sec­ondary school are likely to earn $400,000 less over the course of their lives than those with a cer­tifi­cate III or higher.

More work­ers have gained non-school qual­i­fi­ca­tions in the past decade – up 10 per cent to 57 per cent – and it is es­ti­mated three­quar­ters of new jobs in the next five years will call for at least a cer­tifi­cate III.
