Transitions from Education to Work in Europe

The relevance of double status positions in school-to-work transitions differs greatly between institutional contexts. Dual system students and working students are most frequently found in OLM countries, ongoing training during early working life is most common in ILM countries, and in Southern Europe, double status positions of any type hardly exist. Apart from these differences in relative importance, double status positions go hand in hand with specific employment situations. Dual system participants combine fixed-term contracts with full-time employment, while studying workers are not very different from their non-studying colleagues. Working students are more often employed on a part-time basis. Nevertheless, the permanency of these student jobs is fairly high, much closer to the situation of regular employees rather than to that of dual system students. With regard to the occupational level of the jobs held by young people, there are also some differences.
