    Differential effects of schooling and cognitive and non-cognitive skills on labour market outcomes: The case of the garment industry in Ethiopia

    This paper contributes to the discussion on the effects of schooling and skills on labor market outcomes in developing countries with growing economies. The data are from workers in foreign-invested garment companies in Ethiopia, and the effects of cognitive, non-cognitive, and practical skills are analyzed separately from schooling years using the skills assessment module of the SKY project. The study reveals the impact of educational background and skills on the labor market, rewards of cognitive, non-cognitive and practical skills on the labor market, and the different challenges of skills assessment in developed and developing countries.

    Ghana Interim Report: Skills Demands in the Dual Labor Market of Formal and Informal Sectors: Findings from a Skills Assessment of Garment Workers in Ghana

    This report presents an analysis of SKY skills assessments conducted for two sewing firms, four TVET institutions, and the informal sector workers in Ghana from 2019 to 2020.

    The analysis covers the following four major areas.
    (1) Analysis of the compositions of skills (how cognitive and non-cognitive skills affect performance, and how these skills affect each other)
    (2) Gaps in perceptions among stakeholders regarding “what kind of skills are important in the workplace.”
    (3) Comparative analysis of the formal and informal sectors (cognitive and non-cognitive skills, relationship between skills and salary)
    (4) Factors influencing the career plans of TVET institution students (socioeconomic background and subjective factors)
