Describes the educational qualifications of young people entering European labour markets as the key individual determinant of successful school-to-work transitions. It analyses the institutional and structural factors that have led to differences between the various European countries in the scope and nature of educational expansion in recent decades. The chapter gives a detailed account of the changes in educational attainment in the various countries of Europe and shows, that although levels of education have risen tremendously in all European countries, considerable cross-national differences have remained, both with respect to levels of education and, more importantly, with respect to the different emphasis placed on general education vs vocational training.
