Earnings effects from investing in vocational education and apprenticeships


What are likely earnings effects from continuing investment in education after leaving secondary schools, ranging from a Level 2 apprenticeship via BTECs obtained in further education to graduate earnings? How do they differ when looking into alternative subjects (e.g. STEM) or routes (e.g. vocational, higher apprenticeships or university)? And what are the long-term effects of education investment on other outcomes like health and crime? The session will give an overview of the quantitative and qualitative evidence found in research to answer these questions.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
