The Continuing Vocational Training Survey (CVTS) may be described as an Enterprise Survey, forming part of an array of European statistics on Lifelong Learning. The scope and content of CVTS is governed by Commission Regulation No. 1153/2014, implementing Regulation 1552/2005.
As an enterprise survey, CVTS only includes enterprises employing a minimum of 10 persons – either full-time or part-time. The main aim of CVTS may be summarised as the collection of comparable European statistics on the provision of continuing vocational training by enterprises either directly or in cooperation with third parties.
Locally CVTS was undertaken for the first time in 2006, with reference year 2005, and a second time during reference year 2010. A third wave of CVTS data collection is foreseen for reference year 2015.
