Abstract

This paper examines British apprenticeships, their incidence, and their impact on labor mobility using the National Child Development Study Sweep 4. The apprenticeship was the principal form of training received by male school leavers at age sixteen in the 1970s. The paper estimates the determinants of male apprenticeship receipt and of apprenticeship termination. A competing-risks model of employment duration is also estimated in order to examine the impact of apprenticeships on tenure and job mobility. Copyright 1994 by Royal Economic Society.
