Berufliche Weiterbildung für Arbeitslose - ein Weg zurück in Beschäftigung? : Analyse einer Abgängerkohorte des Jahres 1986 aus Maßnahmen zur Fortbildung und Umschulung mit der ergänzten IAB-Beschäftigtenstichprobe 1975-1990 (Further vocational training for the unemployed - a way back to employment? : analysis of a cohort of people completing further training and retraining measures in 1986, using the extended IAB employment sample 1975-1990)
Abstract"The success of further vocational training and retraining is evaluated in this paper on the basis of a comparison group approach and using a new data source. For this the IAB employment sample was extended to include details about further training and retraining measures. For a cohort of people completing further training or retraining measures in 1986 the authors analyse as an example the effects on the individual labour market success between 1986 and 1990. The access requirements for these measures are reconstructed for the participants of the further training and retraining measures and for a control group. The control group is made up of people who were employed for a short time in the period 1983-1986 and, like the participants in the further training and retraining measures, previously claimed unemployment benefit. By means of a hierarchical matching method, statistical doubles are found for about 90% of all the participants in the further training and retraining measures. On the basis of 985 pairs of participants and comparison persons, event-analytical estimations are made concerning the return to employment subject to social security contributions after a course of further training or retraining or after the period of short-term employment. In addition the determinants of the duration of this first phase of employment are estimated. The results suggest that in the period under examination participation in further training or retraining has a weak positive employment effect for individuals who were unemployed before beginning the training measure if they take up work immediately after the measure. However, further training and retraining have a significantly negative effect - seen in relation to the control group - on remaining in employment. The authors interpret this as a consequence of employment-relevant deficits that can not be influenced by further training or retraining. Further detailed evaluation studies with (extended) business statistics can help to clarify this." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
