Skills Activation includes indicators of the transition from education to work, together with labour market activity rates for different groups of the population, to identify those which have a greater or lesser representation in the labour market. The transition to work sub-pillar comprises 2 indicators to measure transition from education to employment: early leavers from training; and recent graduates in employment. The first indicator corresponds to one of the EU education and training targets for 2020, namely to reduce the early leavers from education and training below 10%. The second indicator corresponds to another of the EU education and training targets for 2020, namely to reach the employment rate of recent graduates of 82%. The labour market participation sub-pillar comprises 2 indicators to measure activity rates of different groups of the population: activity rate of the ‘core’ working population (25-54 year olds); and the youth activity rate (20-24 year olds). Detailed information on the definitions and the background of these indicators can be found in the Technical Report.
