Research of educational structure in wood processing and furniture production sector


The labour market is becoming less and less safe for individuals with their education, while globalisation, multicultural unification, and fast economic growth/technological development present great challenges – with knowledge and creativity being basic resources of development and survival on the world market. The aim of this study is to establish the educational structure of the employed in the field of wood processing and furniture manufacture. The emphasis is upon the proportion of high professional qualification. The analysis of educational structure includes – according to the National classification of activities - the DD 20 area of Wood processing and production of wood and cork, and the DN36 area of Furniture manufacture and other processing industries. The research has revealed that 50% of the surveyed companies are managed by highly qualified staff, while only 3.77% of the employed in wood processing and furniture manufacture have high qualifications.
