Abstract [en]

This article investigates the relation between Second Chance increase in formal education among low educated adults in Sweden and long term wage development. Despite the awareness of the role of education for employability and individuals’ overall life chances surprisingly few studies have investigated the wage effects of Second Chance Education for adults. Research contributions referring to long term effects of such educational investment are particularly limited. In this study we use a longitudinal register database compiled by Statistics Sweden where we follow all low educated adults in Sweden from 1992 over a time span of twelve years. The results show both impressive direct and long term positive effects on wages after the adult attainment of a completed secondary education.  In further analysis a large proportion of the long term effects are shown to relate to further educational attainment after the completion of Second Chance secondary education. The conclusion that is drawn is that Second Chance Education in Sweden is an effective tool for improving long-term labour market prospects and economic opportunities for low educated adults, this not least through its ability to start educational trajectories.
