Carrying out tracer studies: Guide to anticipating and matching skills and jobs, Volume 6

This guide is a part of the European Training Foundation (ETF), the ILO and the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) series of guides on skills anticipation and matching.

This guide aims to contribute to improving TVET, as well as higher education, by conducting high quality graduate surveys or tracer studies. Such studies should allow analysis of the impacts of study programmes and conditions at education institutions. The key objective is to identify the relevance of education/training for the transition to a job and further vocational career in the first years after graduating.
