The European Training Foundation (ETF) hosted a meeting in Jordan to present the results of two recent research initiatives in the country. The first aimed to measure the incidence of skills mismatches in ETF partner countries, while the second assessed innovation and effectiveness in labour market interventions.
To address skills mismatch, the ETF has developed a framework for calculating key skills mismatch indicators, with a focus on horizontal and vertical mismatch, relevant age groups and types of education.
The research on labour market interventions looked at the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a view to identifying the main lessons and messages for the next generation of policies and measures aimed at human capital development, and improved labour market performance.
The European Training Foundation is the EU agency supporting countries surrounding the European Union to reform their education, training and labour market systems.
