Changes in Transition of Czech HE Graduates in the Context of Economic Crisis
As shown by the outcomes of REFLEX 2006, the behaviour of Czech graduates and the factors concerning their transition from school to work in the mid of the last decade have many similarities but also some differences when compared with graduates from other European countries. The paper describes how some factors previously different have changed within the last four years and what factors have been most affected by the crisis. The focus is mainly on the changes in the modes of teaching at higher education institutions and on factors that describe a professional success of graduates. A new data collection called REFLEX 2010 was conducted in the Czech Republic in 2010. As many questions are identical and population of students is defined in the same way, i.e. 4 or 5 years after graduation it enables to compare what has changed between 2006 and 2010. More than 8.5 thousand of electronically completed questionnaires were collected in 2010. Thus it is possible to compare how situation of graduates who entered the labour market in 2005 or 2006 has changed in the first years after entering labour market to those graduates who entered labour market in 2001 or 2002 whose situation during their establishing at the labour market was not affected by the economic crisis.
