Abstract

Using data from the Microzensus 2004 we investigate differences in participation rates of different groups of employees - men and women, old and young, native Germans and foreigners in further training. The analysis shows that German and young employees participate more often in further training, while gender differences are muted. Some of the determinants of vocations training participation are relevant for the whole sample while others apply to specific subgroups. In the latter context female participation is determined by family circumstances such as number of children; these are not important for men. Further school level is an important determinant in the case of younger but not older employees. Differences in characteristics account for only part of the observed differences in further training. Besides this explained part of differences in further training the unexplained part is a relevant factor, too. These latter factors emphasise barriers concerning the participation of different subgroups of employees and of establishments financing further training.
