Abstract [en]

While a considerable number of studies have focused on factors driving employees to voluntarilyparticipate in training programs, much less is known on this topic with regard to the unemployedpopulation, in particular the older unemployed, who often are in a vulnerable labor market positiondue to educational deficits and skills obsolescence. This study proposes and investigates a serialmediator model of older unemployed individuals’ training intentions grounded in propositions fromsocial cognitive theory and the theory of planned behavior as well as prior models of employeeinvolvement in training. The results, based on cross-sectional questionnaire data from 176 unemployedPortuguese individuals aged 40þ, suggest that age, education, and proactivity have an indirect effect ontraining intentions via learning self-efficacy and training-related outcome expectations. Age was alsodirectly related to stronger training intentions. These results may be useful for interventions aiming toencourage older unemployed individuals’ participation in training.
