Realization of the Education Level of the Labor Market


  • Pobeda Loukanova


The problem of inconsistence between acquired and demanded specialties on the labor market eventually reveals loss of human resources, which could have been realized as such if hired on the studied specialties. Avoiding such negative economic and social result requires a well organized monitoring of the higher and secondary vocabulary education and their results, evaluation and adjustments according to the needs of the employers and the public practice. In this connection, the article presents results of studies on this inconsistence according to the acquired education degree. It turns out that there is bigger shortage of staff with secondary education, and at the same time there is a deficit of staff with higher and secondary education with realized low intensity of transition from primary to secondary education. To a certain extent this limits the range of the transition from secondary to higher education. In this connection, the article gives recommendations to the education concerning improving its quality, and on that basis – achieving better mobility of the labor force. The paper counts also the complex requirements of the Europe 2020 program and the national engagements for their realization.
