Cedefop organised its fourth workshop on employers’ skill needs surveys.
After completing a feasibility study, Cedefop is now developing an enterprise skill needs survey to meet the growing demand for robust information in this field. The survey findings should also provide input for Cedefop’s regular forecasts of the demand for and supply of skills and at the same time close certain information and data gaps.
The initial results of development work on a pilot survey, and subsequent proposals, were presented and discussed at this workshop. Key issues were: identifying the survey results needed for policy analysis and research, various aspects of and approaches to the measurement of skills by the planned enterprise survey, and an initial overview of the anticipated statistical methodology.
The discussions will help Cedefop to continue its development work in the right direction.
Presentations are available below.
