Seamus McGuinness from the Economic and Social Research Institute will kick off the event summarising the variety of concepts which lie behind the of measures of skills mismatch currently in use (e.g. skill shortages, over-skilling, under-education, etc.). Mark Winterbotham, who for several decades managed the Employers Skill Survey in England, will then reveal the extent of skill mismatches reported by employers. Last but not least, Kostantinos Pouliakas from Cedefop will present findings from the latest European Skills and Jobs Survey (ESJS) which provides detailed information on the extent to which employees skills are matched to their current job.
