Testing the role of screening with vocational skills: the case of post-secondary initial vocational training institutes in Greece

The paper examines whether post secondary initial vocational training acts as a filter in the private sector segment of the Greek labour market, using a sample consisting of post secondary initial vocational training graduates and secondary education graduates (control group). The results suggest that no screening is evident in the case of male employees, whereas the hypothesis of «weak» screening cannot be rejected in the case of female employees.
