EDUCATION

Having a vocational or higher education qualification allows individuals to engage with society and in many cases leads to fulfilling and rewarding careers. The proportion of adults living in Australia who have a non-school qualification has increased from 50% in 2002 to 59% in 2010. This increase is reflected across all types of non-school qualifications (graph 1.3) with the exception of Certificate I/II qualifications which fell from 8% of the population in 2002 to 5% in 2010.
