Some long-term unemployment in Cyprus tends to involve low-skilled individuals from the tourism and construction sectors who are not very likely to participate in training programmes. However, long-term unemployment is also found among highly trained individuals - particularly among young people and those who lost long-standing jobs following the banking crisis and subsequent bail-in.

In November 2008, Professor Sir Michael Marmot was asked by the Secretary of State for Health to chair an independent review to propose the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England from 2010. The strategy will include policies and interventions that address the social determinants of health inequalities. The Review had four tasks:

1. Identify, for the health inequalities challenge facing England, the evidence most relevant to underpinning future policy and action

2. Show how this evidence could be translated into practice

The report, conducted by BOP Consulting and funded by the Peter Sowerby Foundation, brings together a strong and growing body of research that shows how and why reading for pleasure can bring a range of other benefits to individuals and society. There is already strong evidence to show that reading for pleasure plays a vital role in improving educational outcomes. However, in the UK, reading levels are low among people of all ages: most children do not read on a daily basis and almost a third of adults don't read for pleasure.

Within human capital literature, an important line of empirical research is concerned with estimating the returns to human capital investments; above all, the returns to education have received considerable attention lately. Typically, empirical work is focused on establishing relations between human capital indicators such as education and training, on the one hand, and outcomes as wages, employment opportunities or job quality on the other hand. The private rate of return to education is by far the most analysed of the returns.

The importance of a highly skilled workforce has become increasingly relevant in the context of the European Union new strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth - ‘Europe 2020’. At the individual level, a good education is increasingly decisive for employment prospects and earnings levels. The skills and competences of the workforce are the product of a large variety of learning activities that take place in diverse institutional contexts. While good initial education provides an essential foundation, learning continues through the working years.

This technical report aims to provide a framework for the collection of statistical indicators and sub-indicators on adult skills. This information can be used to monitor skill development among EU countries while comparing its progress with the agreed target and EU average performance. A preliminary list of indicators is proposed based on data availability. Some discussion on their appropriateness is also presented in line with the Joint Assessment Framework methodology (JAF). The conceptual framework and approach build upon the work of OECD et al.

The systematic inclusion of information on orientation of study (vocational vs. general) in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) starting from 2014 will give the possibility to analyse the features and the labour market outcomes of individuals depending on the programme orientation of their qualification. One of the main purposes of this technical briefing is to investigate the possible impact of the addition of this information in the context of the Joint Assessment Framework (JAF) approach, in particular with reference to the benchmark on the employment rate of recent graduates.

The role played by the educational system regarding the provision of adequate skills is indisputable. Cognitive skills, which are the key for successful participation in the labour market, in social and civic activities and in further education and training, are mainly developed through formal education attainment at young ages. As educational attainment increases, individuals are exposed to higher levels of training and should develop greater abilities and be more skilful at processing information.
