Cedefop to Publish Study on Benefits of Upskilling Low-Skilled Adults

Print page

A preview of a new report by Cedefop, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, argues that investing in the skills of low-skilled adults can bring significant social and economic benefits. The study, titled, ‘Investing in Skills Pays Off: the economic and social cost of low-skilled adults in the EU’, will be published in full in 2017. Its findings support the European Commission’s ‘Upskilling Pathways: New Opportunities for Adults’ initiative. It will estimate the monetary value of increasing skill levels at a faster rate than at present, and will demonstrate the clear benefits of policies to raise skills among adults.

More information can be found on the website of Cedefop.
