Kampmeier, Anke
Gender and qualification: Are gender differences ignored?

The presentation is lead by the two main intentions of the project, namely

  • to investigate the impact of gender segregation of European labour markets on vocational education and training and
  • to investigate to which extend women and men tend to develop different sets of key qualifications in situations of vocational training and occupational change.
At the current state of art we found, that it is not very easy to extract key competencies and their connection to gender. Our expectation was to get quite a number of abilities, qualifications or competencies which have key functions and which are characteristic for women and men in their jobs. In the German case statements referring to this subject were rather scarce. I will discuss this outcome by some aspects appearing during the report.
