Statistics in Focus: Population and social conditions. Working time spent on continuing vocational training in enterprises in Europe. 2003.1

The survey was twothirds financed by the European Commission. Developing abilities and skills through continuing vocational training at work is an essential part of lifelong learning and reflects the role enterprises play in seeking for appropriate solutions to overcome labourmarket and employment problems. The survey provided important statistical data and indicators on the forms, content and extent of continuing vocational training.
