More than one third of Education and Training workers also complete volunteer work
Education and Training is a large and fast growing industry. A significant share is female and part-time work is common. The workforce is highly educated and university education is often required.
A large proportion of these workers are aged 55 years or older, suggesting retirements will create many opportunities in the industry over the next decade.
Education and Training employment is projected to increase strongly over the five years to May 2022, influenced by growth in the school aged population, continued strength in international education and growing demand for adult and community education.
