THE SKILLS OF THE FUTURE: HIGH SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY PERCEPTION VS. LABOR MARKET

Tamas, A.
Abstract:
Purpose - The aim of this paper is to investigate the match between the students’ skills in high school, the skills to be acquired in tertiary education and the relevance of these skills on the labor market. Design/Methodology/Approach – Quantitative methods: questionnaires. The questionnaires were applied in two different regions from Romania: the most developed and one of the most deprived. A 5 Likert scale was used for investigating their perceived skills (5 means the best). For the actual skills, the respondents had to choose their level between beginner, advanced or expert. Findings – The results are gender sensitive, but the place of origin has a low influence. The best skills for girls are reading fluently and understanding a text and the best skills for boys are solving a Math problem independently and understanding a logical reasoning. Practical implications – The study presents which are the most important skills in the senior year in high school in the students’ opinion, as well as the match between their perceived skills and the skills required on the labor market. Originality/Value – A Granger causality was found between the different levels of skills. The study offers an insight on Romanian students’ perceptions on their skills. Limitations – The questionnaires were distributed only in the richest and in the poorest part from Romania. Future research should be made including other regions.
