This article investigates gender differentials in skill-use and training participation in the aftermath of vocational training in Germany. We find that women use less of their apprenticeship skills than men once they have left their apprenticeship occupation. Moreover, women are significantly less likely to obtain further formal training upon completing apprenticeship than men, whether staying within the same occupation or not.
