Season's greetings from Cedefop! To mark the European Year of Skills, Cedefop has created a special advent calendar, combining two things we all love: Christmas and skills.

Behind each door, until 25 December, a skill that an EU country will need in the future will be hidden, mixed with a little bit of Christmas spirit.

A small taste:

Cedefop advent calendar 1 December

‘Delivering presents for over 6 000 years can take a big toll on your health...
In Austria and Slovakia, the occupation with the highest growth in absolute numbers will be personal care workers.’

Come back every day to find out about a new country and skill, and celebrate this very special European Year of Skills Christmas.

From everyone here at Cedefop, we send you our best season's greetings and wish you a happy new year!
