Training in Europe

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Using the European Community Household Panel, we investigate gender differences in training participation over the period 1994-1999. We focus on lifelong learning, fixed-term contracts, part-time versus full-time work, public/private sector affiliation, and educational attainment. Women are typically no less likely than men to train. While there is no significant training-age profile for women, there is a negative profile for men. In several countries there is a negative association between fixed-term contacts and training, particularly for men. In most countries and, for both sexes, training is positively associated with public sector employment and high educational attainment.
