Exceptionally Gifted Women in Vocational Training
Stamm, Margrit; Niederhauser, Michael
European Journal of Vocational Training, v45 n3 p109-120 2008
This article investigates the extent to which exceptionally gifted women in vocational training differ from their exceptionally gifted male colleagues. On the basis of a Swiss follow-up study of the development of performance excellence of particularly gifted apprentices, three areas were investigated in more detail: choice of occupation, stress behaviour and performance development. Gender-specific differences are observed in all three areas. It is particularly noticeable that female apprentices, although significantly less resistant to stress, perform more successfully in individual fields of competence than gifted male apprentices. The further course of these women's vocational training is therefore of great interest. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
