Second 2014 PIAAC Bulletin Now Available - Do Education & Training Amount to Skills Gains?

Essential Skills Ontario has just released the second of its 2014 Essential Skills Bulletins on PIAAC - the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies. Over the past several months, the research team at Essential Skills Ontario has been using the OECD’s public database to unpack and analyze PIAAC results in Canada and Ontario. The second bulletin - Do Education & Training Amount to Skills Gains? - talks about the relationship between education and training on skill levels, as well as the findings in Ontario and Canada.

In the upcoming months, Essential Skills Ontario will be releasing two more PIAAC bulletins that analyze skills and employment and earnings, as well as skills among youth. We hope that these bulletins continue to help in making sense of the rich data the survey has provided.
