Post-school qualification is the highest qualification a person aged 15 years and over has gained over and above any school qualifications. Included are qualifications awarded by educational and training institutions, as well as those gained from on-the-job training. Post-school qualification data is produced by level of attainment and by field of study.
In 2018, information is collected on whether the post-school qualification was gained in New Zealand or overseas.
