Support for the work on policy guidance on basic skills for adults  (31/07/2015)

Catalog N. : KE-02-15-567-EN-N

This study provides the Commission with input to inform policy discussions on adult basic skills. Equally, it can serve to provide Member States and stakeholders with policy guidance and good practice examples in order to increase policy effectiveness, with a focus on enhancing such learning opportunities for adults who lack basic skills and those who left initial education prematurely. It can therefore help to better target spending on adult education and training and the allocation of European Structural Funds towards improving basic skills and strengthen the monitoring by the Commission of country specific recommendations in this area.

In contrast, job opportunities are growing in some high-skilled professions. These are the main findings of the European Vacancy and Recruitment Report 2014. The report also highlights the increase in temporary and part-time work during the crisis and underlines the need to better support school-to-work transitions, to decrease segmentation of the labour markets and to up-skill jobseekers, particularly the low qualified.
