People with specific restrictions who wanted to, but did not, participate in more non-formal learning in the last 12 months, reported that their own ill health (31%), no time (24%) and too much work (21%) were key reasons preventing from being able to do so (Graph 14).
In addition, more people with specific restrictions in this age group, reported that they lacked information or that there were no suitable courses available (14%), compared to people with no disability (8%). These people were also more than twice as likely to report that they had no places available compared to people without disability (9% and 4% respectively).
Of all people with specific restrictions in this age group, 42% were employed compared to 82% of those with no disability (Graph 15). More people were in employment between the ages of 45-54yrs than in later years.
People in this age group who were employed were more likely to have qualifications in vocational education than in University degrees (Graph 16).
Those with specific restrictions generally had higher rates of VET attainment (65%) than people with no disability (57%) and lower rates of University qualifications (32%) compared to those with no disability (41%).
