This conference, originally scheduled for 26 April has been postponed until 12-13 June 2013.
But the conference’s focus remains the same. How can we reduce the costly mismatch between skills people have and those wanted by the labour market through:
- labour market information, such as Cedefop’s pan-European skill supply and demand forecasts, to help education and training to reflect more closely labour market needs to provide skills in demand;
- different forms of apprenticeship and work-based learning, particularly among young people who often lack work experience to complement their qualifications
The conference will also continue to bring together policy-makers from the European Union, Business Europe, the ETUC, UNESCO, Germany, Greece and Ireland to discuss these issues.
