    Abstract

    El Seguro de Cesantía (SC) junto con proteger el ingreso de los trabajadores dependientes ante eventos de desempleo, tiene el objetivo complementario de incentivar y apoyar la búsqueda de un nuevo empleo. El año 2007, se dio inicio a un programa de becas de capacitación para los beneficiarios del Fondo de Cesantía Solidario (FCS). Utilizando datos administrativos del SC y de las capacitaciones recibidas, se utilizan técnicas de evaluación cuasiexperimental para estimar el impacto de estas capacitaciones sobre los beneficiarios de dicho programa. Nuestros resultados sugieren que distintos tipos de capacitación tienen efectos muy variados sobre la probabilidad de realizar cotizaciones al SC. Los cursos orientados a desarrollar oficios con clara orientación hacia el sector dependiente formal, muestran un impacto positivo y significativo en la empleabilidad del beneficiario, sobre todo en los primeros meses posteriores a la intervención. Por el contrario, las actividades que no presentan una clara orientación hacia el sector dependiente formal, tienen un efecto nulo y a veces negativo sobre la probabilidad de cotizar. Nuestra interpretación es que, en estos últimos casos, los cursos consiguen el objetivo de aumentar la empleabilidad, pero en sectores no cubiertos por el Seguro, particularmente en actividades como trabajador independiente..
