In Denmark unemployed people have the possibility of acquiring work experience by participating in job training at either a private or public company. The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the employment e ects of participating in job training for unemployed people on social assistance in the age between 30 and 64 years. Additionally the thesis also investigates whether job training has an impact on the decision to withdraw from the labour market for people on social assistance. The thesis nds that job training conducted at both a private or a public company hasten people on social assistance into employment. Job training in private companies has a positive employ- ment e ect both during and after the training, whereas job training in a public company has a positive e ect in the period after the training. Although job training at both private and public companies improves the chances of employment for people on social assistance, the e ects of the private system are larger than the e ects found in the public system. Furthermore, the e ect of job training at a public company decreases faster than the e ects of having participated in private job training. Finally, participating in job training in a private company postpones the decision of withdrawing from the labour market and thereby maintains the unemployed on social assistance. Conversely, job training in a public company has the opposite e ect, where unemployed are more inclined to withdraw from the labour market as a consequence of their participation in job training. This e ect is, however, not signi cant when evaluated at the estimated withdrawal for the participant of public job training.
