The Monitor charts EU and country progress towards:
Europe 2020 targets on early school leaving and tertiary educational attainment
Education and Training 2020 benchmarks in participation in early childhood education and care, adult learning, underachievement in basic skills, and employability of recent graduates
Cross-cutting priority themes, such as financing of education and professional development of teachers
With its international comparison and country analysis, the Monitor fuels the debate on priority themes for education and training, informs national education reform debates, and stands as a reliable and up to date source of information for peer learning among EU Member States.
The Education and Training Monitor relies on a broad range of quantitative and qualitative sources, including Eurostat data, OECD studies and surveys, analysis of education systems undertaken by the Eurydice network, quantitative analysis of survey datasets, and academic networks.
