The labour Insertion of the Pedagogues in the Framework of the Active Labour Market Policies

ABSTRACT The current labour policies are one of the essential pillars in the operation of the job market, contributing to job creation and facilitating the insertion of the unemployed, including graduates as a group that merits priority attention. Thus, the aim of this study is to conduct a review of the impact that current active labour policies have on the graduate’s employability, through a research with students in the last year of their degree in Pedagogy, implemented at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). We used descriptive methodology, applying a questionnaire on the topic of the graduate’s insertion into the job market (sample of 169 subjects). We conclude stating the necessity to promote these policies in the scenario of higher education, as they are the most appropriate in terms of employability. Similarly, we support the carrying out of impact assessments mainly focused on the results of such policies and on the possible ways to improve them.
