Christin Schafstädt is doing her PhD in educational science at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen on the topic school to work transition. She combines classical theories of career choices with the Capability Approach according to Amartya Sen and investigates the ability of jung adults to shape their individual educational and employment biography. For this purpose, problem-centred interviews were conducted with school-leavers with A-levels, which are evaluated using the documentary method.
