Education and Training in Europe Monitor

The 2017 edition of the Commission’s Education and Training Monitor, shows that national education systems are becoming more inclusive and effective. Yet it also confirms that students’ educational attainment largely depends on their socio-economic backgrounds. Among other findings, the report shows that the employment rate of recent graduates continues to recover from the 2008 crisis, standing now at 78.2%, not far from the goal of 82%. The report also looks into the mismatch between jobs and the skills workers possess, which remains high, particularly among bachelor’s diploma holders. According to the report this should be an incentive for educators to review curricula and education standards, and for students to review their choices of field of study.
