Abstract: The present discussion note has been commissioned by DG Education and Culture in the context of the Council Conclusions on a Strategic Framework for European cooperation in Education and Training for the next decade (¿ET 2020¿),May 2009. Given the importance of enhancing employability through education and training in order to meet current and future labour market challenges, the Council requested that the European Commission makes a proposal for a possible European benchmark in this area by the end of 2010. The objective of the note is to discuss possible indicators to measure the contribution of E&T to employability and the potential for a benchmark in this field. It analyses the importance of enhanced employability in relationship to current and future challenges (demographic, economic, etc.), proposes a working definition of employability, a framework for discussion and analyses the role of E&T systems at various stages of an individual¿s working life, suggesting possible related indicators. It, furthermore, discusses methodological issues related to the type and scope of the benchmark and provides a number of questions for reflection.
