There have not been much literature evaluating the performance of training program for the North Korean migrants which designed for social integration between the migrants and the South Korean society. The purpose of this study is to investigate how effective the training program is to increase the migrants' performance in the labor market.
It has been revealed that many migrants joined the program and preferred participating management and service related job training. However, the quality of the program does not seem effective enough: the program was, on average, 4-5 months long and cost per person was about 730 thousand won. As a result, 54.4 percent of the participants has completed the program but only 15.1 percent of the participants has jobs.
Moreover, the analyses using the Unemployment Insurance DB show that the training program seems not to boost the job attachment and job stabilities. These results imply that the training program might need to be redesigned for strengthening the performance of the program.
