PhD Opportunity – Gender and Occupational Segregation in Apprenticeships

Gender & Occupational Segregation in Apprenticeships Funded by the ESRC and SDS (Skills Development Scotland)
This project will carry out a major review of gender and occupational segregation in apprenticeships in Scotland. It will look at horizontal segregation (concentration in different occupational frameworks) and vertical segregation (concentration at different VQ levels) within the apprenticeship system. The project will examine the causes, nature and consequences of gender segregation across occupations in the wider economy, consider the key challenges to addressing occupational gender segregation in apprenticeships and identify good practice approaches to addressing these challenges. The studentship is a well-resourced 3-year scholarship (including an annual maintenance allowance of £13,726 and training support of £750), co-funded by SDS (Skills Development Scotland) and the ESRC and offering the student unique access to policy and practitioner expertise and impact. The successful applicant will start as soon as possible. Contact Prof Mike Danson for further information

Supervisors: Prof Mike Danson, Herriot Watt University and Prof Ailsa McKay, GCU
