This review presents an in-depth analysis of funded training provision across Member States aimed at raising the skills of adult unemployed persons (25-64) with low levels of qualifications or inadequate basic skills. The review describes the funding, the institutions responsible for governance and the implementation of training programmes. It maps and provides detailed information of the set-up of training interventions and measures provided to unemployed adults throughout the 33 EEPO countries. The review also explores lessons from comparative analysis, drawing on evaluation findings, highlighting effective design features and considers the role of the European Structural Fund (ESF) in supporting training for unemployed adults. Finally, it outlines the challenges training programmes need to overcome and presents a set of recommendations.

This policy brief on social impact measurement for social enterprises was produced by the OECD and the European Commission. It presents the issues and ongoing debates surrounding social impact measurement and provides concrete examples of measurement methods. It highlights the concept of proportional measurement, in other words balancing up the costs and benefits of the measuring process. The policy brief also looks at guidance and resources for use by social enterprises and how to create a more widespread culture of measurement among stakeholders despite their often limited human and financial resources.

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.

Globalised and rapidly changing labour markets need a skilled and mobile workforce that can continuously develop their knowledge, skills and competences to thrive and prosper in this increasingly competitive landscape. Through the Copenhagen process on enhanced European cooperation in vocational education and training (VET) that was launched in 2002, the Commission has been working together with the Member States and the social partners to improve the performance, quality and attractiveness of VET.
This policy brief was produced by the OECD and the European Commission on sustaining entrepreneurship activities by entrepreneurs in under-represented and disadvantaged groups. It provides evidence on business survival for entrepreneurs from groups that are under-represented or disadvantaged in the labour market and discusses the obstacles that reduce the chances of survival for these businesses. Policy makers can take action to increase the chances of survival for these businesses, including providing training to boost business management skills, providing coaching and mentoring, facilitating access to finance and provide business development services.
This policy brief is part of a series of documents produced by the OECD and the European Commission on inclusive entrepreneurship. The series includes policy briefs on youth entrepreneurship, senior entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, evaluation of inclusive entrepreneurship programmes, access to business start-up finance for inclusive entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship by the disabled as a well as a report on ‘The Missing Entrepreneurs’. All these documents are available in English, French and German. They are available at http://www.oecd.org/cfe/leed/inclusive-entrepreneurship.htm

Low qualified workers encounter increasing difficulties to find a job, face lower job stability and are out-competed by medium-skilled workers even in elementary occupations. 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. This report is available in electronic format in English only.

ESCO – boosting job matching throughout Europe
European prosperity depends on a flourishing labour market which helps both working people and
employers make the most of training and skills. EU citizens have an EU-wide labour market open to them
and employers have a pool of people in 28 countries to choose from. However, matching the right worker
to the right job remains a challenge.
ESCO is a multilingual classification of occupations, skills, competences and qualifications, designed to
help jobseekers and employers to match skills to jobs. Learners, workers and businesses will all benefit.
ESCO will help everyone get more out of Europe’s labour market. This publication will be available in printed format in English, French and German.
