Bridging the gap from welfare to education: Propensity score matching evaluation of a bridging intervention

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

We evaluate a bridging intervention for a group of young people aged 18–29, with no formal educational qualifications, who are not in employment, education or training. The bridging intervention consisted of classroom training, educational internships and mentoring. Based on Danish register data with a large number of control variables, a propensity score matching estimator was applied to assess the effectiveness of the bridging intervention. The results show that the bridging intervention was effective in increasing educational enrollment and completion for all participants. The effects of the intervention were particularly large for participants assessed to be ‘not ready for education’ and those diagnosed with psychiatric disorders suggesting that the bridging intervention may be especially beneficial for these subgroups.
