From education to working life - The labour market outcomes of vocational education and training (2012)
Using data from the EU labour force survey 2009 ad hoc module, this report focuses on the labour market outcomes of VET. Comparing levels and orientations of education, it considers employment, occupation or sector differences, the education-to-work transition process, job quality and the effect on wages. The report underlines that initially VET results in positive labour market outcomes, which should be placed in a longer-term context, given the effect that structural changes in European Union labour markets will have on the demand for occupations in different sectors.
Green skills and environmental awareness in vocational education and training (2012)
This report claims that the main factors slowing down adaptation to the green economy and the development of necessary skills are the failure of employers to demand new qualifications, and the uncertainty surrounding regulations and policies.

The Europe 2020 employment strategy, and in particular its initiative ‘An agenda for new skills and jobs’, aims to support the full employment goal of the Lisbon Treaty. In a context of growing challenges for employment policies in Europe, this report questions current approaches and calls for increased policy learning amongst EU Member States. The report argues that there is room for improvement in employment in Europe and emphasizes the importance of improving access to education, developing more transversal skills and balancing job security and flexibility.
Payback clauses in Europe: supporting company investment in training (2012)
Research on the operation and performance of incentives and funding instruments to support investment and participation in adult learning has become more significant since the Lisbon strategy set the target for lifelong learning. The Education and Training 2020 strategy has now set the benchmark for adult participation in learning at 15%, to be reached by 2020. This is a great challenge considering that the current European average is still below 10%.

Around 5.5 million young people are unemployed and more than 7.5 million young people under 25 are currently not in employment, education or training (NEETs).
