This chapter discusses the findings of a study that compares the strategies of actors, market logics, and policies regarding the employment of young people in six European countries. It focuses on recent developments with regard to modernising vocational education and training. While identifying tendencies of convergence, the chapter shows that structures of path dependency continue to influence the structural patterns of national transition systems. With regard to the two major trends of increasing professional qualifications and flexibilising wages, it shows that specific strategies are connected to different actors and complex processes of negotiation.

Keywords: Europe; market logics; vocational education; path dependency; national transition; flexibilising wages
