Gender Gap in UK – Women to take two-thirds of high-skilled roles over next six years says UKCES

An increase in the gap between women’s and men’s qualifications will see women take two-thirds of high-skilled jobs across the next six years, according to the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES). Capture d’écran 2014-09-05 à 08.29.06

The report, UK Skills and International Competitiveness, predicts that by 2020 49% of women will have degree-level qualifications, up from 38% today.

For men the proportion with this level of qualifications is also predicted to increase, but at a slower rate. It currently stands at 36% and UKCES claims it will reach 44% in the next six years.

The prediction of women who are not educated to GCCE level will fall across the same period, from 24% to 15%. For men the drop will only be three percentage points, from 23% to 20%.
