Sectoral perspectives on the benefits of vocational education and training

Sectoral perspectives on the benefits of vocational education and training

Job satisfaction is no luxury: it is an integral part of human resource policy and considerably affects productivity. But the relationship between job satisfaction and training varies significantly across sectors. This may be due to factors such as working practices in the sector, the technology used in production process, and social and cultural norms. The latest in Cedefop's series of studies on the benefits of vocational education and training discusses the variance of job satisfaction among sectors, and what role national or regional growth strategies can play in improving it.

Cedefop’s latest research paper reviews the use of loans for learning in 33 European countries and analyses the schemes in eight Member States: France, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Finland, Sweden and the UK.
