Working in Wales: Findings from the Skills and Employment Survey 2012

Starts: 12:30  8 July 2013
Ends:  15:30  8 July 2013

Every five or six years a survey is carried out which collects data on the employment experiences of British workers.  In 2012 the sixth of these surveys was carried out by an interdisciplinary team headed by Professor Alan Felstead of Cardiff University’s School of Social Sciences, in collaboration with Duncan Gallie (Nuffield College, University of Oxford) and Francis Green (Institute of Education, London).  Like its predecessors, The Skills and Employment Survey 2012 (SES2012) is a national study of people aged 20-65 who are in paid work.

On Monday 8 July 2013, WISERD in partnership with the Bevan Foundation, will be hosting a launch event to accompany the launch of a series of Welsh reports based on findings drawn from the 2006 and 2012 surveys.  The report provides hitherto the most detailed picture of work skills and quality of jobs in Wales over a six year period and how these trends compare to other parts of Britain.

Copies of the Welsh reports and supporting data resources will available following the Welsh launch event on 8 July on the project web site:

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.
