Education and Employment Sector Outcome: the Case of Vocational Education in Thailand
This paper examines the how upper secondary vocational education affects the individuals' employment sector outcomes as compared to general education at the same level does. The paper segments the labour market into four employment sectors according to the goods or services produced. In addition to the four employment sectors, unemployment and non-participation are also included as the possible labour market outcomes of the individuals in the model. This paper finds that as compared to general education at the same level, upper secondary vocational education significantly increase the individuals' probabilities of employment in the industrial sector as well as all of the three non-agricultural sectors employment. Upper secondary vocational education, the paper argues, is a supplier of skills needed for Thailand's industrialisation process.
