Terence Hogarth leads a programme of research at IER on vocational education and training (VET) with a particular emphasis on apprenticeships. This research is very much concerned with understanding the relative effectiveness of national VET systems in satisfying both current and future labour market demand. Related to this, he also leads a programme of research at IER on skill mismatches using a range of methods including surveys, forecasting, foresight and text mining techniques. His current programme of research at IER comprises several projects looking at these issues.
Between 2016 and 2020, he was a Senior Adviser at Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB), a not-for-profit research foundation based in Rome, where he led a programme of cross-national research on employment and skills. His research at FGB focused on effective systems of skills governance and skills anticipation, and cross-country comparisons of apprenticeship systems.
At IER, from the mid-1990s onwards, he led the Net Costs and Benefits of Training to Employers series of studies which provided estimates of the net cost/benefit to employers of training apprentices. Over the past thirty five years his research has been funded by the CEDEFOP, the Department for Education, the European Commission, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the World Bank amongst others.
He has recently edited a series of essays on technology, skills an employment – published as Economy employment and skills: European, regional and global perspectives in an age of uncertainty (Rome: Quaderni Series No.61).
He was educated at Walbottle Comprehensive School and Newcastle University.
