Statistics in Focus: Population and social conditions. Costs and funding of continuing vocational training in enterprises in Europe. 2002.8
The second European survey of continuing vocational training in enterprises (CVTS2) was carried out in 2000/2001 in all the Member States, Norway and nine candidate countries (Bulgaria, The Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland - Pomorskie region only, Romania, Slovenia). The survey was two-thirds financed by the European Commission, and besides important information on the forms, content and extent of continuing vocational training at work it also provided key data for analysing the costs of continuing training. , The funding structure of CVT courses is important material for assessing enterprises' willingness to invest in the continuing training of their employees, and in addition shows the significance of CVT measures on the demand side of the labour market. The increasing importance of qualifications obtained through such measures is also reflected in enterprises' rising expenditure on internal and external CVT courses. This publication presents basic findings on the costs and funding of continuing vocational training courses in 21 European countries. For Greece, France, Italy and the United Kingdom the data were not available in time for this publication.
