European Education Area

Quality education and training for all

Education and Training Monitor

The Education and Training Monitor presents the European Commission’s annual analysis of how education and training systems evolve across the EU.

The Monitor brings together the latest available data and other evidence, alongside updates on national policy measures. These contribute towards the monitoring of the European Education Area (EEA) strategic framework, with the 2022 edition of the Monitor as part of the EEA Progress Report.

The Education and Training Monitor consists of the following parts:

Comparative report: progress towards EU-level targets

The Education and Training Monitor’s comparative report tracks progress towards achieving the EU-level targets agreed as part of the EEA strategic framework. 7 EU-level targets have been set, and this report complements them with numerous supporting indicators to shed light on context and possible policy levers.

In addition, the 2022 edition starts with a brand-new EU-level indicator that can be used as a broad measure of the equity of EU education and training systems.

Country reports: your country

The Education and Training Monitor’s country reports capture recent and ongoing policy development at all education levels in the 27 EU Member States. They provide the reader with more in-depth insights into the performance of countries with regard to the EU-level targets agreed as part of the EEA strategic framework.

The country reports are based on the most up-to-date quantitative and qualitative evidence available.

Monitor Toolbox: key indicators

The Monitor Toolbox provides an overview of the key indicators used in the Education and Training Monitor. It puts a spotlight on the context that the EU-level target and indicator domains are embedded in. The Monitor Toolbox strengthens the cross-EU knowledge of education and training systems and their broad variation across Member States. It also provides users insight into the European Commission’s comparative analysis.
