The Transition from Education to Work

The Transition from Education to Work

A Focus on Subject Choices

(p.76) 4 The Transition from Education to Work
Gender Inequality in the Labour Market in the UK

Sarah Morgan

Oxford University Press

The chapter describes the link between educational experiences and early outcomes in the labour market, with a strong focus on the gender differences in the choice of subjects studied by girls and boys at school and university. Following a life stage approach, the chapter takes us through the stages girls and boys go through in moving from education to the labour market. The authors provide evidence on the educational achievement of girls and boys, including higher educational achievement, but also apprenticeships, and the effect these have on gender differentials in the labour market (specifically employment and pay) soon after leaving education.

Keywords:   subject choices, educational achievements, apprenticeships, NEET, work-based learning, transition, labour market, gender
