Continuing vocational training and adult learning
At a time when Europes population is ageing rapidly, continuing vocational training and adult learning is of profound importance to Europes competitiveness and to the employability of its citizens.
Continuing vocational training takes place after initial education or entry into working life and aims to help people to improve or update their knowledge and skills or to acquire new ones.
Eurostats Continuing Vocational Training Survey (CVTS) is the main source of data on vocational training in enterprises, though further sources exist. Users should note the differences in methodologies (collection method, sample, time scale, definition, etc) between the various sources.
For more detailed data and further methodological information go to Eurostat.
