Cedefop conference on work-based learning: video highlights, interviews and a picture gallery

Participants in Cedefop’s conference on work-based learning (12-13 June) called for the implementation of European Union (EU) policy initiatives on developing apprenticeship and other forms of work-based learning across Europe in order to address rising youth unemployment. The conference gathered more than 150 experts on vocational education and training from around the world, policy-makers from the European Commission and Member States as well as social partners’ representatives.

New publication: Roads to recovery: three skill and labour market scenarios for 2025

Cedefop’s latest forecast for skill supply and demand in the European Union foresees a gradual return to job growth and an older, but better qualified, workforce. It considers three scenarios – baseline, optimistic and pessimistic – to show how different economic circumstances may influence the labour market from now until 2025. All three point to a skills mismatch in the European labour market in the medium term.
 
 
New publication: Benefits of vocational education and training in Europe for people, organisations and countries

New publication: Benefits of vocational education and training in Europe for people, organisations and countries

People, organisations and governments invest in vocational education and training (VET) because of its positive outcomes, such as higher wages, improved productivity and economic growth. But VET also brings non-economic benefits, such as lower absenteeism and less crime. Research on VET’s benefits has focused on specific relationships, such as its impact on productivity or health. Insufficient attention has been given to how VET’s benefits interact in organisations.

Croatia – Country statistical overview

On 1 July 2013 Croatia became the European Union’s 28th Member State. To mark the occasion Cedefop has prepared a statistical overview on vocational education and training (VET) and lifelong learning in Croatia.
