Auswirkungen einer zusätzlichen Lehre auf die Beschäftigungschancen von Universitätsabsolventen



"The question as to the employment prospects of doubly qualified people (those who completed a course of vocational training between school and higher education) meets with increasing interest. A study published in 1995 and carried out on the basis of the Socioeconomic Panel by Büchel/Helberger (Technical University, Berlin) finds that doubly qualified people do not have higher income prospects on entering the labour market than people who have only a university qualification and that they have to look even longer for a job which matches their education and training. These rather negative statements can not be confirmed by an analysis by the IAB of the data from the BIBB/IAB survey. Here no proof can be found of statistically significant disadvantages of doubly qualified people with regard to entering employment which is matched to their education and training (or with regard to income prospects). Although university graduates who did not do an apprenticeship occupy senior and managerial positions more frequently than their doubly qualified colleagues of the same age group up to the age of 35, later on the doubly qualified people seem to be able to make up for lead the younger 'single qualified' people had on entering the labour market, at least in the private economy. Both the analyses by Büchel/Helberger and the data sources based on the analyses by the IAB are, however, only partially suitable for the study of the employment prospects of doubly qualified people. An overall assessment of this strategy of accumulating qualifications, which includes both individual and economic points of view, requires further studies." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
