Press Release - Forecast shows jobs in Europe becoming more skills- and knowledge-intensive

Cedefop’s latest forecast on the demand and supply of skills to 2020, presented today in Brussels at the European Commission conference New Skills for New Jobs: Action Now, foresees a steady rise in knowledge- and skill-intensive occupations.

The total number of job openings is expected to be around 80 million by 2020, with the biggest increase in high-level managerial, professional and technical occupations.

Those with higher qualifications will clearly be in the best position to take advantage of these developments. But the European economy will continue to need a broad basis of skills at intermediate level, especially those acquired within vocational education and training.
