About the Observatory

The INFPC's Training Observatory carries out studies, analyses trends, and brings its expertise to the field of lifelong learning.

The purpose of the studies and surveys carried out is to support decision-makers in both the public and private sectors in guiding their training and employment policies.

In order to successfully carry out its mission, the Training Observatory is in contact with the institutional players operating in the fields of education, guidance and lifelong learning.

Its work programme includes a number of studies and analyses:

The Training Observatory is also responsible for coordinating for Luxembourg the European Network of Reference and Expertise in Vocational Education and Training known as ReferNet.

Companies' training practices

The Training Observatory analyses employees' access to training and companies' training efforts, using data collected in the context of applications for the co-funding of in-company training.

Using the same administrative data, the Training Observatory provides for each reference year an analysis of the State's financial contribution to the companies' training plans.

Continuing training offer

The Training Observatory carries out a recurrent survey on available continuing training, to gain a better knowledge of the market for training in the Grand Duchy.

This survey throws light on the structure and training practices of training bodies. This is broken down among various categories of training bodies, including private bodies, institutional/sector-specific bodies, and not-for-profit associations.

TEVA, Transition from school to working life

Enabling young people to get a good job quickly and lastingly is a real task for society.

In this context, the TEVA study (Transition Ecole-Vie Active – transition from school to working life) carried out by the Training Observatory sets out to analyse the early careers of school-leavers.

Vocational integration barometer

Based on the TEVA study, the employment prospects for newly qualified professionals after their initial vocational training are presented through the barometer of vocational integration.

This barometer makes it possible to measure, compare and monitor the progress made regarding vocational integration and the quality of the jobs occupied by qualified school-leavers after their initial vocational training.


The Training Observatory regularly publishes studies and analyses on issues related to the companies' training practices, State co-funding of training, the offer of continuing training in Luxembourg and the vocational integration of young people by means of the TEVA study.
