- involving multipliers.
The scoreboard offers seven monitoring tools:
- Country fiches, providing detailed descriptions of countries’ mobility policies, structures and mechanisms;
- Scorecards, synthesising the individual performance of respective countries in implementing the Youth on the move recommendation;
- Progress graphs, allowing for following up a country’s progress over time;
- Benchmarking graphs, allowing for comparing progress in two countries;
- Maps, showing country categories with respect to aspects of mobility policies;
- Indicators, showing country categories with respect to performance in implementing the Youth on the move recommendation in each mobility area;
- Overview Tables, showing country categories in terms of overall implementation performance, all indicators combined.
The mobility scoreboard for initial VET is produced within Cedefop’s department for VET systems and institutions (DSI). It is based on country information provided by ReferNet and validated by country representatives. The scoreboard was designed in cooperation with the European Commission (EMPL E3), EACEA/Eurydice, and the expert group on a mobility scoreboard for IVET. Cedefop has sole responsibility for the country information, data analysis, monitoring tools and policy suggestions presented. The analyses and policy suggestions are not intended to reflect the views of governments.
