Education has a key role for personal and work-related outcomes. Several studies show a distinct influence of educational achievements on everyday competencies of individuals, which are necessary for a adequate social participation. Nevertheless, there are lots of positive and negative factors on the education and career path: the education of parents, social positions and norms, individual mindset, motivation, learning behaviour and self-confidence. Educational institutions are faced with these factors and thus can either enhance or mitigate equal opportunities. Enhancing equality is crucial to adequately assess influences of individual factors to develop targeted interventions.
