Cedefop (European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training)

Cedefop, (the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) founded (1) in 1975 and based in Greece since 1995, supports development of European vocational education and training (VET) policies and contributes to their implementation. Europe’s strategy for 2020 (2) is a route for smart, sustainable and inclusive economic growth through knowledge and innovation, which sets an employment rate target of 75%. The success of this strategy depends on the skills of Europe’s workforce. Enterprises need people with the skills required to compete and provide high-quality goods and services. People need the right qualifications to find jobs. People with low levels of or no qualification are nearly three times more likely to be unemployed than those with high qualifications. In the EU, around 75 million people, nearly a third of the working population, have low levels of or no qualification. Too many young people, around 15%, leave school without any qualifications.
