Abstract

What are the effects of migration into Germany on growth and employment? Can immigrants close the skilled worker gap? Is Germany an immigration country? The study develops an empirically founded profile of changes in the economy and society in Germany until 2030. It identifies skilled worker bottlenecks and offers recommendations for ensuring a sufficient supply of workers. That includes the integration of migrants, an expansion of the adult education system and a long-term, forward-looking family policy on the basis of an improved compatibility of family and work life. The study was commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales).

Abstract

"The third long-term forecast by Economix estimates the implications of the recent influx of refugees on the German labour market as well as the qualification structure among the employees. At the same time, it forecasts the opportunities and risks of digitalisation. All analyses come to the conclusion that the integration of refugees into the labour market represents the primary task of the coming five to ten years. Indeed, the immigration of refugees rejuvenates the population. However, it also causes a decline in the qualification structure of labour supply. The authors emphasise both the necessity of extensive and systematic further education programs for all employees as well as the importance of developing educational services for refugees and encouraging them to participate in vocational education. The digitalisation scenario shows considerable increases in growth and employment as a consequence of the use of digital technologies. However, this positive development requires

Abstract

The separation of academic and vocational training has a long tradition in Germany. The introduction of third level study courses without A level prerequisite was supposed to make the education system less exclusive. Against a background of increasing academic focus in the business world, however, interest in "studies on the basis of existing professional qualifications" is on the rise. The articles contained in the volume offer information about current studies, present the current status quo of research and follow up on biographies of students who chose "third chance education". The volume deals with challenges in education policy, with didactic-curricular and theoretical aspects, as well as with to date unanswered questions regarding research and development. Interest is not only focused on third level education - the entire traditional German education system is currently undergoing change.

Abstract

The potential role of vocational education in Austria, Germany and Switzerland was the topic of the Fifth Austrian Conference on Vocational Education and Training Research 2016 (5. Österreichische Berufsbildungsforschungskonferenz 2016). The debate revolved around the expectations of vocational education, for example whether it promotes social integration and mobility, if it can be understood as a driver of innovation and whether it is capable of providing employment impulses.

Abstract

"In the long-term observation of the German education system, the authors proceeded to analyse the known indicators of the study. A key topic is the influence of migration experiences on educational biography. Every two years, the report delivers a survey of the German education system and examines framework conditions, such as costs and requirements, educational institutions like nurseries and schools, vocational training and university education, further education at an adult age and educational effects and returns."

Abstract

Who is employed in further education programmes? What are their qualifications? Under which conditions do they work and how satisfied are they with their work? It is the first study to provide representative data on the qualifications, employment situations and working conditions of employees in the adult and further education industry. The data of this two-step personnel survey was collected in 2014. More than 6,000 adult educators from more than 1,800 training institutions participated in the survey. This study serves as a supplement to educational reporting in Germany, which has hitherto rather been focussed on providers, offers and participation. Furthermore, it offers a reliable basis for assessments regarding the professionalisation of adult and further education. Moreover, the collected data may be used for further research.
