Fact Sheet

Gender Parity in Post-School Education and Training Opportunities

This Fact Sheet provides a comparative analysis of the gender profile of students in the PSET system, with a specific focus on access and success.

This Fact Sheet monitors the strides made within the post-school education and training system to enhance equity and promote transformation, particularly in terms of gender.

We use the Gender Parity Index (GPI) to measure progress towards gender parity in PSET, and track progress with a view to drawing attention to interventions required to address any challenges.

We find that although the unemployment rates of women have remained higher than that of males over the past decade, the positive effects of high female participation and success rates in post-school education and training are bearing fruit as the unemployment rate between the males and females is narrowing.
