improved employability for participants

Berufliche Orientierung

We find some evidence that taking part in social action boosts employability according to the interview measure of employability. However, this measure is only statistically significant at a 0.10 alpha level and should be treated with some caution.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

Quantitative Fragebogenerhebung (schriftlich/offline)
It was decided that randomised controlled trials would be used to determine programme impact. By taking a large enough group of trial participants, it is possible to allocate participants such that some receive "treatment" (in this case, participation in a social action initiative) and some do not. Those that do not are referred to as the "control" group.
