  • Participation in early childhood education has reached the ET 2020 benchmark;
  • Early leaving from education and training has reduced significantly since 2002, but progress has stagnated over the past few years;
  • Despite improved participation rates, education outcomes in reading, maths and science have deteriorated;
  • Young women stay longer in education and training and show better reading skills;
  • Young people with disabilities or from a migrant background show significantly lower educational attainment;
  • Early leavers and low-educated young people face particularly severe problems in the labour market;
  • The share of the population with tertiary education has reached the ET 2020 benchmark;
  • Employment rates rise with educational attainment;
  • Women achieve higher tertiary education attainment rates, but male graduates are more likely to find employment;
  • Foreign-born residents achieve lower tertiary attainment rates and lower recent graduate employment rates;
  • Adult participation in learning remains far from the target set for 2020;
