How can a forecast model be useful for planning labour market training? The basic idea is: • A system for employment offices to gather information about recruitment plans, competences and mapping recruitment problems. • Better understanding about different cultures in the companies – needs of different competences. • That companies feel that they get some add-value by the visits from employment officers. • This information (knowledge) is necessary to create a more efficient matching between jobseekers and vacancies – supported by measures in the field of labour market programmes • Forecast result is a useful tool to plan labour market policies, planning labour market programs specially labour market training and distribution of budget means
