- Labour market prospects deteriorate for early leavers from education and training
- In 2011, around 55% of early leavers from education and training were jobless (up by nine percentage points compared to 2008).
- ICT skill levels on the rise
- One in two 16-74 year-olds in the EU now has a medium or high level of computer skills.
- Does VET contribute to raising tertiary educational attainment?
- In the EU, 8.5% of all 30-34 year-olds have a practically-oriented tertiary qualification, equivalent to a quarter of those with tertiary education attainment in that age group.
- The green side of innovation
- In 2008, at least 20% of innovative enterprises in many EU countries had procedures in place to identify and reduce their environmental impact.
- Crisis pushes young people towards involuntary part-time jobs
- 6.8 million young people in the EU are either unemployed or underemployed.
- Forecasting skills supply and demand: work in progress on new sets of data
- A recent Skillsnet workshop has helped improve skills forecasting methodology by introducing new parameters for the break-down of results.
- More job openings for high-skilled workers
- Employment in high-skilled occupations is not only resisting the crisis but on the increase since 2008
- Latvia - Lithuania cross border cooperation project on lifelong learning
- A bilateral project called ‘5L – Enhancement of Lifelong Learning Cross-Border Capacity’ (No. LLII–102) was initiated in January 2010 and concluded with the final conference on 3 June 2011. The abbreviation ‘5L’ means ‘Lifelong Learning in Latvia and Lithuania’.
- Germany - In-company continuing vocational training despite employee departures?
- Germany's anticipated shortage of skilled workers is a very talked-about subject - and is already reality in some sectors and regions of the country.
- Ireland - Skills for the green economy
- A recent study set out to identify the future skill requirements of the ‘green economy’ in Ireland and to propose a range of measures to ensure that the future skills base will drive business and employment growth*.
- Europass is a portfolio of five documents, designed to make skills and qualifications clearly and easily understood across Europe.
- Employers’ surveys - Members only
- This Cedefop’s initiative explores the potential of employers’ survey as a tool to identify skill needs and skill gaps at workplace level. The aim is to develop a tool or instrument to reliably identify future needs of skills, competences, occupations and qualifications in public and private enterprises in Europe as input for broader skill needs analyses.
Cedefop looks into selected sectors of the economy to identify new and emerging skill needs. Sectoral workshops are organised regularly to discuss the current situation and the development potential of a particular sector focusing on future skill requirements. A background study, if available, workshop proceedings and a Skillsnet ‘sector flash’ are published by Cedefop after each sectoral workshop highlighting the main trends, developments and skill needs in the sector.
Cedefop has looked into selected sectors of the economy to identify the latest trends and skill needs. It investigates future skill needs but mainly the emergence of new skill needs which are not (yet) covered by related policies and statistics. This information is necessary for future-oriented policies, defining and validating skills, knowledge and competences and implementing them in curricula, training regulations, and qualification standards as well as using them for vocational guidance.
- The European credit system for vocational education and training (ECVET) helps individuals who are trying to acquire a VET qualification to move between countries and gain access to lifelong learning. It does so by making it easier to transfer, to have recognised and to accumulate assessed learning outcomes. In cooperation with the European Commission, Cedefop provides technical and analytical support for the implementation of the ECVET Recommendation at the EU, national and sectoral levels.
- Forecasting skill demand and supply - Members only
- Skill supply and demand forecasts provide comprehensive information on the future labour market trends using skills as the key parameter. The forecasts aim to help different labour market actors - employees, employers, students and parents, social partners, policy makers - to take informed decisions and appropriate action concerning the labour market. The forecast acts as an early warning mechanism to improve interaction between education and training systems (covering all types and at all levels) and the labour market and to avoid potential skill imbalances.
- Cedefop investigates skill mismatch and skills obsolescence in Europe. It does so to help policy makers detect skill mismatch problems so that they can prevent them. The project aims to explore how different trends shape skill needs, how learning contributes to skill supply and to what extent Europe suffers from skill mismatch.
- The European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is a common European reference framework. It acts as a translation grid which links countries' qualifications systems/framework. It covers qualifications at all levels and in all sub-systems of education and training (general and adult education, vocational education and training as well as higher education). Its main role is to make qualifications more readable and understandable across different countries and systems. In close cooperation with the European Commission, Cedefop provides analytical and coordination support for the implementation of the EQF and carries out a number of comparative studies and analysis on issues related to the implementation of the framework at EU, national and sectoral level.
- Through a number of comparative studies and analysis, Cedefop aims at deepening the understanding of qualifications in Europe. All studies and analysis take into account the shift to learning outcomes and reflect the key elements in the definition of qualifications, for example educational and occupational standards, validation, curriculum development, assessment and the processes involved in awarding and recognising qualifications. The studies’ outcomes feed directly and support systematically policy developments at EU, national and sectoral level.
