The perception of subjective vocational success of young adults with prolonged transitions in Switzerland


Kamm, Chantal (2019). The perception of subjective vocational success of young adults with prolonged transitions in Switzerland. In: Stalder, Barbara E; Nägele, Christof. Trends in Vocational Education and Training Research: Proceedings of the European Conference on Educational Research (ECER), Vocational Education and Training Network (VETNET). Bern: European Research Network on Vocational Education and Training (VETNET), 198-206.

Abstract

In a context of increasing non-linear pathways into vocational education and training (VET) and later into occupation, a differentiated understanding of vocational success is needed. This paper aims at reflecting on a multidimensional understanding on subjective success, adding to the more frequently investigated concept of objective success. Based on theoretical reflections on what could be understood by subjective vocational success, analyses of variances between the group that participated in a transitional option and those with a linear path into VET were tackled using Swiss data from GÜRB and TREE. Results claim for a separated analysis of objective and subjective vocational success as well as for further reflections on the concept of subjective vocational success and the time of investigation.
