The value of basic skills in the British labour market by Oscar Marcenaro-Gutierrez( )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report from the United Kingdom documents the findings of a collaborative research project from the National Research and Development Centre for Adult Literacy (NRDC) and the Centre for the Economics of Education (CEE) at the London School of Economics. The research explores the economic value of basic skills in the labour market in the U.K. in the year 2004. The research explores 3 questions: do people with better basic skills earn more and do they have higher levels of productivity? Do people with better basic skills have better employment prospects? Has the value of basic skills in the labour market changed over time? Using data from the British Cohort Study collected in 2004 the research team found that: Literacy and Numeracy retained a high value in the labour market in the period 1995 - 2004. 10% of the variation in earnings at age 34 is explained by differences in basic skills. People with better basic skills have a greater chance of being in employment and men with higher numeracy skills have comparatively higher employment rates. From the point of view of public policy, the price of basic skills in the labour market is high and there is continued need to improve the skills of the UK workforce and to support programs and initiatives that improve people's basic skills. Report will be of particular interest to policy makers, researchers and adult literacy program planners.

Social mobility and the importance of networks evidence for Britain by Oscar Marcenaro-Gutierrez( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Greater levels of social mobility are widely seen as desirable on grounds of both equity and efficiency. Debate on social mobility in Britain and elsewhere has recently focused on specific factors that might hinder social mobility, including the role of internships and similar employment opportunities that parents can sometimes secure for their children. We address the help that parents give their children in the job market using data from the new age 42 wave of the 1970 British Cohort Study. We consider help given to people from all family backgrounds and not just to graduates and those in higher level occupations who have tended to be the focus in the debate in Britain. Specifically, our data measure whether respondents had ever had help to get a job from (i) parents and (ii) other relatives and friends and the form of that help. We first assess the extent and type of help. We then determine whether people from higher socio-economic status families are more or less likely to have such help and whether the help is associated with higher wages and higher occupations. Our paper provides insight into whether the strong link between parental socio-economic background and the individual's own economic success can be explained in part by the parents assisting their children to get jobs. We find parental help to have a strong social gradient. But we are unable to identify a clear link between any particular type of help - advice, help through contacts etc. - and individuals' wages or occupations

If you pay peanuts do you get monkeys? : a cross-country analysis of teacher pay and pupil performance by Peter Dolton( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why are teachers paid up to four times as much in some countries compared to others and does it matter? Specifically, is the quality of teachers likely to be higher if they are paid higher up the income distribution in their own country, and are pupil outcomes influenced by how well their teachers are paid? This paper considers the determinants of teachers' salaries across countries and examines the relationship between the real (and relative) level of teacher remuneration and the (internationally) comparable measured performance of secondary school pupils. We use aggregate panel data on 39 countries published by the OECD to model this association. Our results suggest that recruiting higher ability individuals into teaching and permitting scope for quicker salary advancement will have a positive effect on pupil outcomes."--Editor
The Value of Basic Skills in the British Labour Market. Cee Dp 77 by Oscar Marcenaro-Gutierrez( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we evaluate the labour market value of basic skills in the uk, focusing on the wage and employment returns to having better literacy and numeracy skills. We draw on literacy and numeracy assessments undertaken by all cohort members of the uk 1970 British Cohort Study. The data used are very rich and allow us to account for potential ability bias, including as they do early childhood assessments of ability. We find that the literacy and numeracy effects on earnings are over and above any general effect on earnings from a person being more cognitively able. We also assess whether the value of basic skills, in terms of wage returns, has increased over time, using a cross cohort analysis based on the 1958 National Child Development Study cohort and the 1970 British Cohort Study. Our results show that literacy and numeracy skills retained their high value in the labour market over the period 1995-2004, despite numerous policy attempts to increase the supply of basic skills during this period. Appended are: (1) uk Classifications of levels of literacy and numeracy; (2) British Cohort Study 1970--2004 sweep at age 34; (3) Means and Standard errors of the preferred bcs sample (n=3131); and (4) Full specification for Table 2 (main text): The relationship between age 34 basic skills and earnings: men and women. (Contains 12 tables and 31 footnotes.)
