Summary

This research report examines the underutilisation of the skills of migrants in regional areas, particularly women who are often the spouse of a primary applicant but are also skilled in their own right. It considers the interplay of the regional labour market, support services for migrants and the role education and training providers play in supporting the participation of migrants in the labour force and in other social activities--Publisher's webpage.
