With the global economy struggling to recover, and more people finding it harder to find work, more and more students are looking for jobs in education, including post secondary level education.
The latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that nearly three-quarters of all Australian post secondary students between the ages of 17 and 24 were earning some form of post secondary degree in 2018.
However, the degree isn’t necessarily the best choice for those looking to go on to further education.
Post secondary degree holders are more likely to have completed higher education, be in a higher level of education, have an interest in a career in the fields of technology and information technology and be willing to work hard for their chosen career, according to the ABS data.
The ABS also released data on the proportion of people who graduated from university with a tertiary degree, and the proportion who got a post-secondary degree.
With the global economic recovery, post secondary graduates are finding it increasingly difficult to find employment.
While it’s important to recognise the importance of the post secondary path, some employers are also opting to give students a break on paying the full cost of their education.
For example, students who have received a postsecondary degree can apply to study in another country.
In 2019, students in the Australian university system earned an average of $33,000 more than those who had not completed a post high school diploma, according the Australian Institute of Public Policy.
The ABS has also released a survey of the highest paid occupations in Australia.
According to the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACUTU), the post sector includes all sectors, including manufacturing, services, mining, tourism and accommodation and food services.
Despite this, more than 40 per cent of respondents said they believed that students should be allowed to study overseas.
This has been a controversial issue in Australia for years, with the federal government warning students against participating in overseas study.
Last year, Labor was one of the first governments to introduce laws banning students from participating in a post graduate study program in Australia, saying that it could lead to job losses.
There has been some debate about the use of students in overseas studies and the possible impact of students taking on more debt than their Australian counterparts.
As a result, students with overseas degrees are being asked to pay a premium to take on more student loans.
But according to ACUTU, the use and impact of overseas students in Australia is on the decline.
Currently, a third of graduates with post secondary degrees are enrolled in a full-time post-graduate study program, while the majority of post-degree graduates in 2019 were enrolled in full-year studies, according TOEFL data.
