Graduation and Employment?

VU International News and Reviews No. 101 November 20 2017

November 2017

The European Commission has published its Education and Training Monitor 2017, tracking actual results compared to targets in key performance indicators like early school leaving, HE attainment, adult education, and employment. It shows that HE attainment for women is well on track (43.9% against the target of 40%), but men are still lagging with 34.4%.

Employment rates of recent HE graduates across the EU region is 82.8%. When looking at the Aurora countries within the EU, we see that Germany is way below in HE attainment, but highest in recent graduate employment, whereas France stands out negatively in recent graduate employment.
