  • Advanced trade, technical and professional qualifications: matching supply to demand

    There is a limited number of areas where it is clear that increasing the number of people with trade, technical or professional qualifications would definitely reduce skill shortages. These areas are in engineering, building and medical professions. Demand in these areas has been driven by increased use of technology, increased construction activity and increased demand for health services. In other areas examined in the report, improving the quality and relevance of qualifications is likely to be as important, or even more important, than increasing the number of people graduating.

    This is report is the second in a series of three reports looking at the supply of and demand for advanced trade, technical and professional qualifications. See "Where to Find Out More" for links to these reports.

This report analyses the accumulation of tertiary education qualifications in the New Zealand resident population over the period 1981 to 2001 using data from the Census and from other sources.
