School-arranged or market-governed workplace training? A labour-market perspective
times of recession, youth unemployment has tended to be one of the greatest
problems on the labour market. This was the case at the beginning of the
1980s, and also during the1990s, in most European countries. In Sweden,
with its tradition of an active labour-market policy, various measures
against youth unemployment have been discussed and tried. In the 1990s,
workplace training was a major characteristic of labour-market measures
taken for young people. In 1992 a youth-training scheme was introduced,
specially directed at young people. This was replaced in 1995 with a more
general programme for all age groups. In both programmes, workplace training
was a crucial factor.
