Terence Hogarth is a Senior Adviser at Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB) where he is responsible for leading a programme of research on vocational education and training. He has over thirty years of experience of researching labour market issues. He previously worked at Policy Studies Institute (based in London), and the University of Warwick Institute for Employment Research.
Terence’s principal interests are in (a) understanding skill mismatches and (b) the employer’s rationale for investing in VET. He has published widely on these subjects including articles in the Journal of Vocational Education and Training, Urban Studies, Journal of Education and Work, Construction Management and Economics, and Empirical Research in Vocational Education and Training. In the mid-1990s Terence was responsible for designing and conducting the Net Costs and Benefits of Training to Employers series of studies in England that he has been recurrently commissioned to carry out. At the end of the 1990s, he was involved in the design of the first Employers Skills Survey (in England) which is still running to this day.
Terence is currently involved in several EU-wide studies looking at issues related to skills.
