Skillset and Match – Cedefop's magazine promoting learning for work - May 2016 issue


In this issue, an exclusive interview with European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility Marianne Thyssen during her first visit to Cedefop.

Ms Thyssen talks about Cedefop’s importance, its contribution to the upcoming Skills agenda and the new challenges for employment and social inclusion the current refugee and migrant crisis creates. She also shares her thoughts on how vocational education and training (VET) can become a first choice for young people (watch the full interview here).

Other highlights include:

  • an eight-page supplement on inspiring ways to tackle skill mismatch;
  • an interview with Cambridge University Professor Geoff Hayward on labour market policies for labour market reform;
  • an interview with Dr Denise Amyot, President & CEO of Colleges and Institutes, Canada on the link between vocational and higher education;
  • and the #CedefopPhotoAward 2016.

The Member State contribution comes from Estonia where VET for adults makes finding work easier.
