Poland -Shortage of skilled workers discussed -April 10, 2015

Too many higher education qualifications has resulted in many people ending up working in positions which do not correspond to their education and aspirations.

Although the unemployment rate remains high, fears have been raised that the country’s education system is failing to produce enough skilled workers, including mechanics, plumbers and dressmakers. According to Eurostat, the percentage of Poles aged 30-34 with higher education qualifications has almost tripled between 2002 and the end of 2013, from 14.4 percent to 40.5 percent. Observers say that there is no economy in the world which would be able to employ so higher education qualifications. This situation has resulted in many people ending up working in positions which do not correspond to their education and aspirations.
