What it's worth: establishing the value of vocational qualifications to employers

14 Oct 2005
Description

What is the value of vocational qualifications to employers? Mark Cully considers three areas in which the economic value of vocational qualifications to employers is evident: in prerequisites specified in job hiring, in employment levels of people with different qualifications, and in the wage levels of people with different qualifications. He finds that employers want people with qualifications when recruiting for some jobs, but experience is more valuable. Employers are more likely to employ people with qualifications but this depends on the level of qualification, age and sex.
