  2. 2. VET is key to meeting labour market requirements Labour demand by qualification (LF 15-64) in EU-27+ Source: Cedefop (IER estimates based on E3ME, EDMOD and BALMOD). Notes: EU27+ refers to the 27 EU Member States plus Norway and Switzerland 50% of all jobs will require medium level qualifications in 2020 And a need for more highly qualified workers implies structural changes and a need to diversify VET provision at the higher level
  3. 3. Most young adults with medium level educational attainment have VET backgrounds Young adults (25-34 years old) by educational attainment and programme orientation, EU, 2009 Source: Cedefop calculations based on Eurostat, EULFS 2009 Ad Hoc Module. Note data are provisional and should not be used or quoted in any publication. 48% of all young people had a medium level qualification in 2009 And 70% of those were in VET Equivalent to over 23 million 25-34 year olds
