Craftmanship in continuous development

Ensuring a good match between education and the labour market demands constant attention. Developments in society and on the labour market place heavy demands on people’s flexibility and learning ability. The position of people with a secondary-level education is particularly worrying in terms of their labour market position and their low participation in post-initial education. With this in mind, in this report the Council focuses on the ‘middle segment’, i.e. those with a senior secondary vocational (mbo) qualification level 2 or higher.
