Men are more likely to earn more after starting an apprenticeship than women, new research by the Centre for Vocational Education Research (CVER) shows.
The research, published by academics at the London School of Economics’ CVER, considered earnings data for around 565,000 students who left compulsory education in 2002-03, as well as the Labour Force Survey.
Authors Chiara Cavaglia, Guglielmo Ventura and Sandra McNally concluded that while most people do indeed gain from doing an apprenticeship, the extent of this gain varies significantly and depends very much on age and gender. Those with most to gain tend to be male, as well as those who start their apprenticeship at a younger age.

With housing nothing seems to change. This is what I wrote in 1999:
“Concerns [about rising house prices] focus on the short term symptoms but it is really a long term problem. The constraints policy applies to the most basic attribute of housing – space – remain the same…When … the National Playing Fields Association complains that – despite government assurances to stop the sale of school playing fields for development - another 80 went last year, it is the flip side of the same coin….”

How well are the tools now available working in improving our understanding of inequalities?
How could they be improved?
Are they succeeding in increasing transparency and engagement with stakeholders and users more broadly?
Effective interventions to reduce inequalities depend on understanding the nature and extent of those inequalities. Frameworks, audits and other analytical tools can help, potentially allowing us to monitor progress or the lack of sufficient progress, to understand the causes, and to design of better policies.
This seminar offers a critical engagement with three current and recent models used by statutory bodies, NGOs and independent researchers in the UK and internationally to analyse and measure different aspects of social and economic inequalities.Who is it for?
This event provides an opportunity for research, policy and NGO communities to discuss opportunities for greater collaboration in using and developing these tools.
