Youth Employment-related Country-Specific Recommendations


  • Simplify and reinforce coherence between employment incentives, activation policies, labour matching, education, lifelong learning and vocational training policies for older people and youth.


  • Accelerate the national Youth Employment Initiative, for example through a Youth Guarantee.
  • Adopt the School Education Act and pursue the reform of higher education, in particular through better aligning outcomes to labour-market needs and strengthening cooperation between education, research and business.


  • Improve the quality of vocational training to reduce drop-out rates and increase the number of apprenticeships.


  • Continue efforts to improve the labour-market relevance of education and training systems, including by further involving social partners and implementing targeted measures to address youth unemployment.
