Education, Training and Employment Dynamics

Transitional Labour Markets in the European Union

Labour Markets and Employment Policy series

Edited by Klaus Schömann and Philip J. O’Connell

Education and training are of critical importance to individual employment prospects. This book questions whether the policies that govern education, training and employment actually facilitate or inhibit social integration. The authors analyse initial entry into the labour market and subsequent movements between employers, and explore links between education, training and the labour market. The book argues that although education is a good predictor of labour market integration and employment potential, and despite political efforts, social background nevertheless remains influential. The importance of continued training to improve opportunities for promotion is also demonstrated.
