Obsolete vocational skills

Other Names:
Outmoded work-study programmes
Obsolete employment training
Outdated job training
Vocational obsolescence in the face of overwhelming need

There are increasing numbers of people unemployed or underemployed because, despite having skills which were once relevant, they lack appropriate and up-to-date occupational skills. They are, in fact, penalized by the progress of technology. Skilled workers can seldom utilize their full potential; others perform poorly because they do not have the necessary training. There are 'holes' in the job market and unmet needs among services for which the skills have not yet been determined.
