    Social Agenda 50 – The new social dimension

    Things are moving fast as employment and social affairs make up a decisive part of the roadmap to a more united and democratic EU by June 2019, announced by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in September 2017: the Commission proposals to make it happen must be on the table of the European Parliament and Council by May 2018 at the latest.

    We explain how the European Pillar of Social Rights, proclaimed by EU leaders last November, serves as a framework for preparing them and is strengthening the social dimension of EU economic governance.

    We also review proposals for an EU framework to raise the quality of apprenticeships, report on evidence of an urgent need to take on intergenerational inequality and show how social innovation is a must to ensure sustainable economic growth.

    Progress across Europe in the implementation of the 2013 EU Recommendation on “Investing in children: Breaking the cycle of disadvantage”: A study of national policies

    In 2013, the European Commission adopted a Recommendation on Investing in children: Breaking the cycle of disadvantage which sets out a common European Framework for tackling child poverty and social exclusion and promoting child well-being. To support the Commission in taking stock of the Recommendation’s implementation and identify key ways forward, the European Social Policy Network (ESPN) was asked to prepare country reports on the implementation of the Recommendation since 2013.

    The overall finding of the ESPN analysis is that the modest progress made in the direction outlined in the Recommendation is insufficient to the scale of the problem in many countries. Particularly worrying is the very limited progress that has been made in many of the countries with (very) high levels of child poverty or social exclusion. A significant intensification of effort is thus urgently required to achieve the aims of the EU Recommendation.

    This Synthesis Report brings together the findings of the national reports written by each of the 35 ESPN Country Teams of independent experts and makes a series of detailed overall recommendations for strengthening the implementation of the EU Recommendation and linking it to the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights put forward by the European Commission in April 2017. Concrete actions are also recommended for individual countries.

    Employment and Social Developments in Europe 2017

    This seventh edition of the annual Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) Review presents a detailed analysis of key employment and social issues and concerns for the European Union and its Member States as they pursue the EU 2020 employment and social goals.

    It feeds into the European Semester and the 2017 flagship initiative of the European Pillar of Social Rights. The main findings of ESDE 2017 corroborate the rationale and the objectives of follow-up initiatives of the Pillar, such as the proposal for a ‘New Start Initiative to support work-life balance for parents and carers’ and the social partner consultations on Access to Social Protection and the revision of the ‘Written Statement Directive’.

    As in previous years, the opening section of the ESDE review provides an overview of the most recent developments, trends and challenges in the employment and social fields. This year's edition focuses on the topic of "intergenerational fairness and solidarity in Europe".

    Teachers and trainers in work-based learning/apprenticeships

    Work-based learning (WBL) in Vocational education and training (VET) provides important benefits, by increasing employability and smoother school to work transition. It contributes to reducing skill shortages and gaps, reduces youth unemployment, increases entrepreneurship and innovation and finally has the potential to foster social inclusion. The aim of the study was to provide the Education and Training 2020 Working Group on VET (2016-2018) with findings on three key areas:

    1. governance arrangements in place for professionals involved in WBL;
    2. professionalisation arrangements for those professionals; and finally,
    3. in what way cooperation between schools and companies is arranged, focusing on the quality of the professionals involved.

    This study follows Cedefop’s (2009 and 2016) categories of professionals based on their place of work.

    Social Agenda 48 - A European pillar for a social triple A

    What the European Pillar of Social Rights, adopted in April, means in practice: this is what the July issue of Social Agenda is all about. The Pillar serves as a reference framework for European Commission proposals on work-life balance and working time. Its spirit also inspires the new Commission proposal on social security coordination, to make free movement of workers within the EU fairer and easier, as well as the latest health and safety package of measures to increase the impact of EU legislation on the work floor. And the focus is on Spain to help employment and social services there cooperate more effectively, on the ground, in the face of long-term and youth unemployment.
