Which paths work for young people?

22 Aug 2011
Description

This paper documents the transition of young people from high school to professional work, via tertiary study or vocational training and apprenticeships.

In this paper, the authors identify various educational paths involving school and post-school study and assess the effectivness of these in relation to post-school outcomes at age 25 years. They use the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth and find that, for males, undertaking an apprenticeship after completing senior secondary and university are attractive paths. For females, the best path is that of university study, even for those with low academic orientation.
