Participation of young people in education and training

31/121

Printable version

Participation rate of young people in training is growing, but the gap with other Eu countries is still significant     

AN OVERVIEW

In the “society of knowledge”, higher education is deemed as a key factor to smooth the transition to the labour market, to facilitate ongoing learning during working life and for a more conscious and active social participation, too. In Italy, the participation rate of young people aged 15-19 in education or training continued to enjoy a period of constant growth. In 2012 it stood at 82.4 percent (an increase by more than one percentage point over the previous year), while among 20-29 year-olds it reached 21.6 percent (+0.5 percent over 2011).

Definitions used

The participation of young people aged 15-19 and 20-29 in education and training is measured by the ratio of students enrolled in the various levels of school education for the two age classes – including those in the vocational training system – to the resident population in the corresponding age classes. The aggregate does not include apprentices, who are not the object of UOE (Unesco, Oecd and Eurostat) data collection. The participation rate of young people aged 15-19 identifies, for the most part, students enrolled in the upper secondary cycle of education (Isced-97 level 3), while the participation rate of young people aged 20-29 mainly identifies the percentage of people participating in the tertiary education system (Isced-97 levels 5 and 6). The international comparison is made with reference to the 21 European Oecd Member states. The rates derived from this source, therefore, cannot be compared with regional rates obtained by measuring the participation of young people in the whole education system (all ISCED-97 levels), ISCED level details not being available in UOE regional data.
