Abstract: 
Individual long run effects of a labour market training programme targeted at unemployed adults are evaluated by comparing mean post-training earnings for matched samples of participants and non-participants. Average training effects on the trained are positive and persistent over the posttraining period of 5 years. Participants without recent work experience, prior to the training, gain less. For participants with recent work experience the present value of the 5 years accumulated earnings effect exceeds the direct costs of the training.
