Next-generation skills intelligence
for more learning and better matching

This policy brief reviews trends in skills anticipation in Europe and explains how it contributes to more learning and better matching. It builds on Cedefop’s monitoring of national skills anticipation systems and practices in the EU-27, Norway and Iceland and input from Cedefop’s ReferNet partners. Collecting data and information on labour market needs and skills trends is not sufficient to design and sustain responsive and efficient vocational education and training (VET) programmes and skills formation systems. Economies and societies need robust skill anticipation methods and trusted skills intelligence to translate data into actionable insights that support the skills revolution.
