Show Summary Details


Offers our conclusions from the empirical parts of the study. We summarize the empirical results, emphasizing in particular the critical role of individual education and, hence, the structure of training systems in facilitating smooth labour market entry. We discuss some implications of our findings for the role of educational expansion and the issue of general versus vocationally specific training institutions. Most importantly, we stress various limitations inherent in our work and suggest directions for further research.

Keywords: educational system; Europe; institutions; labour market entry; labour market structure; school-to-work transitions
