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 www.cardiff.ac.uk/socsi/ses2012

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.
