Education and Lifelong Learning Watch 2015 | Sweden

Sweden is performing well in most educational comparisons and is statistically doing better than many other EU Member states. Sweden made lately some efforts to improve school outcomes, to facilitate the transition from education to the labour market and to improve the labour market integration of low-educated young people and people with a migrant background.

Recommendations

  • Work-based learning elements of vocational training need to be reinforced in order to facilitate the transition between training and school to the labour market;
  • Facilitate access to higher education in the framework of VET;
  • Monitor the recent progresses made in terms of improving school outcomes; facilitating the transition from education to the labour market; and improving the labour market integration of low-educated young people and people with a migrant background.
