We present evidence on the earnings effects of attaining vocational qualifications in adulthood through two…

Fettes, Trisha; Evans, Karen; Kashefpakdel, Elnaz – Journal of Education and Work, 2020

Shevchuk, Andrey; Strebkov, Denis; Davis, Shannon N. – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Previous research examining skill mismatch in the labour market has ignored potential implications for workers outside of the work environment. We argue that the psychological strain that the discrepancy between worker's skills and job requirements wields on workers spills over into the non-work sphere, increasing work-life conflict. This study…

Previous research has documented substantial overqualification and an association with social disadvantage and fields of study. Overqualification persistence has been less studied.

Higher education institutions, communities, and employers experience challenges as young professionals continually adjust their workplace-participation views and behaviours.

Otchia, Christian S.; Yamada, Shoko – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Recent evidence indicates substantial heterogeneity in the returns to skills across countries, but only a few studies have explained the varying patterns in the return to skills. Using the 2013 STEP data for Ghana and Kenya, we estimate the causal effect of cognitive and noncognitive skills on a large set of labour market outcomes by controlling…

Payne, Jonathan – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
A central challenge for local skills strategies is whether they can contribute to 'inclusive growth' including more and better jobs across a local economy. Skills strategies, it has been argued, must go beyond simply boosting skills supply and be integrated with policies that shape employer demand for, and utilisation of, skills, including…

This paper investigates the responsibilities and membership of Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in England in the light of devolution of employment and skills responsibilities. Through the theoretical lens of 'hollowing out' and a direct comparison with the late-Thatcherite Training and Enterprise Councils (TECs) of the 1990s, the paper argues…

Luxembourg exhibits strong transnational traits within its skills regime, defying any neat fit with existing educational typologies.

As such, Luxembourg has developed a hybrid strategy of responding to labour market…
