On the way to 2020: national and international data for vocational education and training and lifelong learning policies


What do statistical data say about your country’s vocational education and training (VET) and lifelong learning policies? How does your country compare with the European Union (EU) average and other Member States?

Take a look at Cedefop’s statistical overview for your country:


Cedefop’s statistical overviews provide a snapshot of VET and lifelong learning in European countries. Supplemented by a short commentary highlighting key points, the overviews comprise 31 selected indicators based on international statistics enabling comparisons between countries and EU statistical averages.

Overviews are available for each of the 28 EU Member States, including Croatia and, where data are available, for the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey. For indicators on all of these countries see:


While always remembering that statistical data need to be interpreted carefully and supplemented by qualitative information, the indicators aim to be a valuable tool with user-friendly data to help policy-makers and researchers.

Data used for the indicators is the latest available at the time of publication and Cedefop is working on updates as new figures become available. Indicators will also be improved as better data become available. A detailed explanation of the indicators can be found at: http://www.cedefop.europa.eu/EN/Files/2013_07_04_Technical_definition_of_the_indicators.pdf
