From the dual apprenticeship system to a dual labor market ? : the German high-skill equilibrium and the service economy. /

by Eichhorst, Werner | Institute for the Study of Labor | Marx, Paul.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Different models of protection against labor market risks are associated with diverging models of economic performance. Historically established institutional complementarities between labor market regulation, unemployment protection, and vocational training tend to mirror specific national models of economic production. For example, the German dual apprenticeship system is a core feature of the corporatist model of "diversified quality production". This, in turn, is supported via skills-protecting, earnings-related unemployment insurance, skills-oriented active labor market policies and strong dismissal protection so that long-term productive employment relationships become viable. The paper explores the connection between structural change and the development of skill creation in the German case with a particular focus on the difference between manufacturing and services as well as between different types of service sub-sectors. The paper takes manufacturing, a sector dominated by standard employment, as a reference point but mainly addresses different segments of the service economy: traditional ones (banking and insurance), new high-skill sectors (IT and the "creative economy") and growing areas of low-skill services (hotels and restaurants, cleaning). We find that dynamic job creation in these segments of the service sector was possible due to a less regulated institutional environment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Skilling and reskilling for our (greener) future /

by Karmel, Tom | National Centre for Vocational Resource.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Research 2010Description: 17 p. : ill. tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented to the 2009 Economic and Social Outlook Conference, University of Melbourne, 5?6 November 2009Summary: This paper was presented at the Economic and Social Outlook Conference, 5/6 November 2009, ; at the University of Melbourne. It takes a sceptical view of the push for 'green skills', arguing that skills required in the labour market evolve relatively slowly, and that the way business operates is driven by changing costs, new technologies and new regulations, with sustainability being only one of many factors. In addition, the presentation provides some data on 'sustainable' courses in tertiary education and then looks at three areas which have implications for the public investment in education and training: the levels of skill acquired through apprenticeships and traineeships, the pay-off to undertaking VET qualifications, and the role of diplomas in the labour market.Availability: (1)
