Abstract

Encouraging skills development is considered essential for a modern workforce, especially when national and European strategies are dependent on economic growth fuelled by innovation. Given that the proportion of younger workers in the workforce fell between 2008 and 2009, this chapter explores whether young people are disadvantaged with respect to taking part in job training. The questions addressed are:
1. Has the relative disadvantage of young people (those below the age of 25) also been reflected in reduced training received by this age group, perhaps reflecting that those who entered work are in a precarious labour market situation, occupying low level positions and lacking permanent contracts?
2. Alternatively, have training rates increased as the number of labour market entrants decreased?
