QuBe stands for qualifications and occupations in the future. The labour market of the future will change the qualification and occupation requirements. These potential developments are highlighted using modelling calculations by updating previously observed records, transitions, trends and behaviours in the education and training system and in the labour market.
By taking into account career changes and with the aid of empirically determined vocational flexibility matrices comparing learned against practised occupations, demand and supply is offset at occupational level in addition to an assessment at qualification level. By taking this approach, it has been possible to uncover both potential bottlenecks and areas of activity in the labour market of the future.
