Secondary Outcomes (end points)
Secondary outcomes include variables that we will use to investigate mechanisms underpinning the interventions’ effects. Secondary outcomes relate to (i) the knowledge about the benefits of vocational training/job-professionalization programs, (ii) self-efficacy and related measures of confidence, anxiety, self-control, goal-setting, and self-esteem. Likewise, additional secondary outcome measures relate to mental health, subjective wellbeing, social networks, and job aspirations.
Furthermore, secondary outcomes shall be complemented with an analysis of potential mechanisms derived from split-sample and/or heterogenous treatment effects. It envisioned that this analysis relates to the following variables: region, age, education, employment, economic well-being, living situation, personality traits, economic preferences (risk, time, patience), levels of self-control, self-efficacy, anxiety, confidence, and whether a woman participated/was assigned to the N4G program.
