There is particular policy interest in the extent to which education and training can affect the length of time take by young people to find a job and the quality of the job that the person can secure. We analyze the time taken by Spanish graduates from the different vocational tracks available to find a job and also estimate the wage differential earned by young people graduating from these different vocational tracks. To do this we use various quantitative models and make use of the first survey specifically designed to conduct this type of analysis (ETEFIL, 2005).
