Gender and qualification. transcending gendered features of key qualifications for improving options for career choice and enhancing human resource potential

Objective

The project will investigate the impact of gender segregation of European labour markets on vocational education and training, with special regard to key qualifications. Gender barriers prove to be inadequate for a modernisation of work processes and lose validity because of impeding both career options of women and men and human resource development. VET systems should aim at competences corresponding to these challenges and at equal opportunities for both sexes. It will be investigated to which extent women and men tend to develop gender specific key qualifications or dispose of them differently. VET and CVT strategies of qualification will be specified allowing to overcome gender segregation in the labour market / to improve employability of both sexes / to prepare for occupational changes. Corresponding recommendation for policy makers and practitioners will be designed.
