Notes
The VET-EDS project is part-funded under the EU’s ERASMUS+ Programme. It is developing and implementing a new toolkit to enable national, regional and local labour market forecasters to ensure that they are able to support the alignment of Vocational Education and Training policy and economic development strategy. It includes case studies, good practice approaches and recommendations that address the need to tailor forecasting (analysis, intelligence, format, methodology) and accompanying labour market intelligence (subject, sector, qualifications) across the partner countries (CZ, DE, ES, IT, NL, SE, UK). Project number: 2014-1-UK01-KA200-001848

Abstract
A core purpose of the VET-EDS project is to identify good examples of the effective alignment of Vocational Education & Training policy and economic development strategies; particularly the role played by labour market information and intelligence (LMII) and specifically forecasting. Two new reports provide evidence on this. This policy brief discusses these reports.
