The concept of skill and the Spanish labour market
The article first examines the different dimensions of the concept of skill and emphasizes the role of social definition in arriving at agreed versions of skill. It then goes on to examine how a consideration of these dimensions of skill can increase our understanding the Spanish labour market with particular reference to unemployment, the role of education and training agencies, the position of women in employment and the status of service-sector workers. Finally it seeks to draw out the implications of this analysis for employment policies in Spain.
