Cluster 2: Education and Careers

Upbringing and education shape identities and individual lifestyles. Here the foundations are laid for decisions about education, and the course is determined for success in working life. Despite definite improvements, young women and men still do not have the same access to more than a few pathways and levels of education and training. In neither lower qualified nor highly qualified employment areas are women able to turn their qualifications into employment positions and pay as successfully as men.
