Major shortages of both teachers and graduates from vocational programmes in upper secondary education


The Labour Market Tendency Survey 2022 shows a major shortage of both teachers and graduates from various vocational programmes. When it comes to teachers of such programmes, 9 out of 10 employers report difficulties in finding qualified staff. Furthermore, there is a shortage of graduates from vocational training programmes within technology and manufacturing as well as from the transport programme. Shortages of healthcare workers remain for many types of graduates, for example those in specialist nursing and radiography. We also see recruitment shortages for persons with some types of engineering education.
