Youth Initiative: Strategy for High Quality, Inclusive, Future-Oriented Education

The European Commission has adopted earlier this month new initiatives on school and higher education. The overall aim of these initiatives is to help Member States provide high quality and inclusive education for all young people through a series of concrete actions, so they acquire the knowledge and skills needed to participate fully in society, are able to respond to new opportunities and challenges opened up by for instance globalisation and technological change, and can tailor their education to the needs of the labour market. This package of initiatives includes a proposal on graduate tracking to help Member States collect information on what graduates do after their studies, an important indicator to analyse labour market needs which EuCheMS has recently collected in the field of chemistry and is currently being analysed under the 2nd Employment Survey for European Chemists.
