What is it?
The Education and Training Monitor is an annual series that captures the evolution of Europe's education and training systems by bringing together a wide array of evidence in one digestible report.
The Education and Training Monitor 2015 puts the spotlight on education priorities most in need of investment and identifies policies that help improve the inclusiveness, quality and relevance of Europe's education and training systems.
Why is it needed?
Since 2012 the Education and Training Monitor has grown into an indispensable reference tool for the European education community, keeping track of priorities under the ET 2020 cooperation framework, and contributing to the broader Europe 2020 strategy with its headline target for education.
The report will be one of the main sources underpinning the Commission's analysis of education challenges and policy developments in the 2016 European Semester.
