Return to Learning, Return to Work: Helping Low-Qualified Adults Out of Unemployment. Briefing Note
Cedefop - European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training
Since 2008, the question uppermost in policymakers' minds has understandably been the explosive growth of youth unemployment. But the crisis has also severely affected low-qualified adults, who face the highest rate of unemployment across Europe. A recent Cedefop study confirms that work-based training programmes can address the particular needs of this group, provided programmes are properly targeted and designed. This brief report discusses the special challenges that low-qualified adults face, along with what work-based learning is and how it can help. Considerations for policy-makers are included.
