Work, Skills and Well-being in Wales: First Findings from the Skills and Employment Survey 2012

Committee Room 1, Glamorgan Building, Cardiff School of Social Sciences



This event, in partnership with The Bevan Fondation, will paint a picture of work skills and the quality of jobs in Wales.  It will draw on data collected for the Skills and Employment Survey 2012, a national study of working people aged 20-65. The results for Wales will be compared to other parts of Britain and with data collected from a similar survey carried out in 2006.

The results will address the following themes:

  • Skills at Work
  • Training
  • Job Control
  • Work Intensification
  • Fear at Work
  • Job-Related Well-Being


For more information on these themes, please visit

Hard copies of the Welsh report will be made available (free of charge) on the day. The event is also free to attend but places are limited.

To register, please email
