Abstract

This paper uses the data from the National Child Development Study (NCDS) to examine the impact of vocational education and training received over the period 1981 to 1991 on the wages growth of young men in employment in both 1981 and 1991. Issues of sample selectivity and of training endogeneity are also addressed. In particular, the paper examines the durability and transferability of work-related training and educational courses received over the period 1981 to 1991, and estimates the extent to which employer-provision, job mobility and certification of courses affect individual productivity, as proxied by wages growth in a fixed effects model.
