dc.description.abstractThis paper assesses the potential of ?workplace training? with reference to GermanApprenticeship. When occupational matching is important, we derive conditions under whichfirms provide ?optimal? training packages. Since the German system broadly meets theseconditions, we evaluate the effectiveness of apprenticeship using a large administrativedataset. We find returns to apprenticeship for even the lowest ability school-leaverscomparable to standard estimates of the return to school, and show that training istransferable across a wide range of occupations, such as a one-digit occupation group. Weconclude that the positive experience with German Apprenticeship Training may guide thedesign of similar policies in other countries.en_US
