EJMB & EVM
In response to the “New Skills for New Jobs Initiative” the European Commission funded a monitoring system to work as an “early warning tool” under the “Monitoring Labour".
Two publications are publishing on a quarterly basis, the European Job Mobility Bulletin (EJMB) - the European Vacancy Monitor (EVM). The EVM is more comprehensive and targeted at a broader audience. It seeks to contribute to policy development and the functioning of labour markets. It provides an up-to-date, dynamic picture of developments in the demand for labour, using a wide range of sources to produce the relevant data on job vacancies, job-finders and hiring will also provide, insight into areas with recruitment difficulties and skills shortages.
The European Job Mobility Bulletin (EJMB) is an analysis of the data on the EURES Job Mobility portal.

Since the launch of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) in 2007, hundreds of good projects have been funded in the field of school, higher or adult education and in vocational training. Financed by the European Commission, networks of national programme agencies for the LLP organise thematic monitoring and networking activities to better exploit the results of these projects and draw lessons and good practices from these experiences.
Subject areas currently being explored include:
•Further training of teachers and training staff: the "City-M" project
•Upgrading and matching skills to labour market needs: the "New Skills Network"
•Working with under-represented and disadvantaged groups: the "INCLUSION" project
•Quality assurance in vocational education and training and in adult education: the "QALLL" project
•Working together to understand and implement ECVET : "NetECVET"
