Selection function of education

Educational credentials are used to select people to a range of occupations in the labour market. The old form of this was a degree for a profession, secondary school completion for office and white-collar jobs for women and men and vocational school for trades and skilled work. Those who left early and without qualification were described as “unskilled” early “school leavers”. Research shows that in general your risks of unemployment and poverty in Ireland and elsewhere are very much related to your achieved educational success.
