The purpose of the study is to provide evidence to support policy decisions and actions at national and EU level by mapping, comparing and evaluating current policy initiatives and measures to increase attractiveness of initial education and training (IVET) in Europe.

The study takes place in the context of the follow-up to the Bruges Communiqué and the short-term deliverables 2011-2014 agreed there by ministers responsible for VET, European social partners and the European Commission.

The study should also contribute to a more coherent and deeper understanding of the multiple dimensions underlying IVET attractiveness and provide some recommendations for future actions.
