Education

LINKS TO OTHER DIMENSIONS OF PROGRESS

The ongoing development of people's knowledge and skills influences, and is influenced by, many other dimensions of progress. As a nation, increased education and training may support economic development by providing people with specialised skills capable of increasing levels of productivity and extending the range and quality of goods and services produced. It may also serve to improve our capability to address public health and welfare issues and various environmental problems. At an individual level, educational participation and attainment can improve outcomes in employment, income and health.

In turn, the opportunity to participate in education and training is influenced by social, economic and individual factors, including: health and economic circumstances, support mechanisms and access.
