Discrimination on the Training Market: Extent, Causes and Recommended Actions.

Study | March 2014

Young people with a migration background have much worse odds of securing a training position even with the same qualifications. This is shown by a national correspondence test, which was conducted by the Expert Council's Research Unit as part of this study. The study examines the mechanisms of discrimination and issues recommendations for how companies, schools, civil society and policymakers can foster equal opportunity on the training market. One of the key issues is how diversity is handled in training companies which can be furthered by offering a "Cross-Cultural Skills" module in the professional qualification for trainers.
