The Education and Training Monitor is an annual publication that captures the evolution of education and training in the EU. It contributes to the objectives of the EU strategic framework for cooperation in education and training, the overall Commission’s strategy for growth and employment and the European Semester cycle of economic policy co-ordination.
The Monitor charts EU and country progress towards:
- Europe 2020 targets on early school leaving and tertiary educational attainment
- Education and Training 2020 benchmarks in participation in early childhood education and care, adult learning, underachievement in basic skills, and employability of recent graduates
- Cross-cutting priority themes, such as financing of education and professional development of teachers
