Education and Training Monitor

What is the Education and Training Monitor?

For the tenth consecutive year, the Education and Training Monitor gathers a wide range of evidence to show the evolution of national education and training systems across the European Union (EU).

The report measures countries’ progress towards the EU-level targets of the strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training towards the European Education Area and beyond (2021-2030).

The Monitor analyses key education challenges and recent policy developments at the EU and national levels. It highlights policy measures that can make European education systems more responsive to societal and labour market needs.

The Monitor comprises an EU-level analysis and 27 country reports.
