Lifelong learning among workers with a vulnerable position

30 August 2018

A new report has been published on lifelong learning among 3 groups of workers with a vulnerable position on the labour market: flexworkers, lower educated workers and older workers.
The report shows that lower educated workers are less willing to participate in training. This is different for temporary workers. They are on average very willing to participate in training courses. Employers, however, are much less willing to invest in workers with a temporary contract. Employers are also less likely to invest in older workers when compared to younger workers. However, older workers are also less willing to participate in training themselves (News Item Maastricht University, 24 July 2018).
