Employment and Employability

Employment and Employability

Employment is a key challenge in all ETF partner countries. High unemployment and inactivity rates – in particular among youth and women – deprive countries from taking full advantage of valuable human resources for their development; while large parts of the population are trapped in low quality jobs that do not permit them to develop their skills and ensure their long term employability. Lack of job creation and inappropriate skills of the population are core issues to be addressed so as to ensure more inclusive labour markets and enhance the employability of the population. In the last years ETF has assisted partner countries to analyse their labour markets giving particular emphasis on the skills dimension so as to support them in the development of better employment policies and measures and for enhancing the external efficiency of their VET systems. However, the available methodological tools that partner countries have at their disposal in order to capture and analyse labour market phenomena for sound policy development as well as their capacity to identify present and future demand for skills are still weak. Further work is needed so that partner countries can effectively develop and use labour market skills-related intelligence for policy making.
