Transition from school to work

definition

The move from education or training to employment, covering the period between leaving education and entering the labour market.

example of use

Many studies point to the importance of tracking and vocational orientation for the allocation of school-leavers in the labor market. In their influential cross-national study on the school-to-work transition, Yossi Shavit and Walter Mu¨ller (1998) find that secondary vocational educational degrees reduce the odds of unemployment (Bol and Van de Werfhorst, 2013: 290).
