    Israel's vocational training

    Get PDF
    Eighty percent of the trainees headed for Israel's labor force go to full-time vocational secondary schools that devote a third to a half of the curriculum time to general studies. Students tend to come from a higher socioeconomic level than those in other training programs. The rest of Israel's vocational students are evenly divided among the Ministry of Labor's remaining three programs: the apprenticeship schools; the industrial schools; and the full-time training courses. Of the four types of training in Israel, vocational school is by far the most expensive. This paper confirms an earlier study that the apprenticeship system was the most cost-effective. However, to conclude that vocational training schools are not cost-effective is to ignore part of the picture. The goals of the vocational secondary school in Israel extend beyond those of providing usable labor market skills. In any cost-benefit evaluation of vocational schooling, these goals would have to be given more weight.Teaching and Learning,Gender and Education,Primary Education,Vocational&Technical Education,Girls Education

    A critical analysis of the Ukrainian experience of vocational training of personnel is conducted in the work. The statistics data on the number of employees who participated in vocational training activities during 2016-2018 are presented and analyzed. Based on the analysis, the main reasons for the low interest of Ukrainian business owners in the personnel vocational training were identified. In the work, the author also has highlighted the factors that restrain and activate the development of vocational training of personnel at Ukrainian enterprises. In order to increase the efficiency of professional development of personnel at Ukrainian enterprises, the author proposes to use modern methods for this purpose. Because traditional methods do not produce the desired results. Ukrainian enterprises need to invest in staff training, which is the main reserve for improving their performance

    Providing Disadvantaged Workers with Skills to Succeed in the Labor Market

    Millions of Americans cannot obtain jobs that pay enough to lift them out of poverty. For many, the principal barrier to obtaining these good jobs is their lack of specialized occupational skills increasingly sought by employers. Research has shown that vocational training can be effective in boosting the earnings of disadvantaged adult workers. This proposal argues that, by helping workers acquire the skills that employers demand, vocational training could be wielded as an effective anti-poverty tool.This paper outlines why Congress should increase funding for vocational training for disadvantaged adult workers. Specifically, we argue that Congress should increase funding for the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Adult program. We also argue, however, that Congress, and the state and local workforce investment boards that administer the WIA Adult program, should explore ways to improve the vocational training that is available to adult disadvantaged workers

    The microeconometric estimation of treatment effects : an overview

    Get PDF
    Vocational training programmes have been the most important active labour market policy instrument in Germany in the last years. However, the still unsatisfying situation of the labour market has raised doubt on the efficiency of these programmes. In this paper, we analyse the effects of the participation in vocational training programmes on the duration of unemployment in Eastern Germany. Based on administrative data for the time between the October 1999 and December 2002 of the Federal Employment Administration, we apply a bivariate mixed proportional hazards model. By doing so, we are able to use the information of the timing of treatment as well as observable and unobservable influences to identify the treatment effects. The results show that a participation in vocational training prolongates the unemployment duration in Eastern Germany. Furthermore, the results suggest that locking-in effects are a serious problem of vocational training programmes. JEL Classification: J64, J24, I28, J6
