Hide / Show Abstract

Upgrading skills is an essential component of any comprehensive lifelong learning strategy; it is particularly important to improve the employment prospects of under-represented groups. Yet, in all OECD countries, these groups receive much less training than those who are already highly skilled or have a good job. What explains the relatively low training incidence among the less educated, older workers, women, immigrants, part-timers and temporary workers? How can training policies effectively reduce these inequalities and what is the role of co-financing arrangements in such a strategy?
