This chapter explores the effects of individual educational attainment on the transition from school to work. It highlights the differences associated with vocational educational training (VET) at the secondary level compared with more generally oriented secondary education. It describes the effects of educational expansion at the tertiary level. The discussion covers the years over the period of transition to the market economy with its strong economic downturn and the post-transition period characterized by increased economic growth. It also examines changes in labor market rewards yielded by individual educational attainment in the course of the time period observed.

Keywords:   educational attainment, school-to-work transition, labor market rewards, economic growth, economic downturn, Slovenia, vocational educational training, market economy
