This chart shows the proportion of workers employed in this occupation by their highest qualification level. As these are emerging occupations, the links between qualification level and employment are not always clear cut, explaining why some occupations have a mix of employees with higher education qualifications and some employees have no post-school qualifications. 

These skills are those most frequently mentioned in Australian job advertisements for this occupation – they do not represent the full set of skills or qualifications required to undertake this role, or the most important skills. Sometimes, skills that are critical to perform a role are not expressed in a job ad as they are considered common knowledge, or a qualification is used as a proxy for these skills.
