Welcome to EFEE
The European Federation of Education Employers

Welcome to the website of the European Federation of Education Employers (EFEE). Here you can find up-to-date news about EFEE and its members, as well as information on European issues and events relevant to education employers.

Both education and training are central in the Europe 2020 strategy for growth and jobs. As highlighted in recent policy initiatives, making concrete progress in implementing the new policy in the areas of education and training requires a strong involvement of social partners to make this happen. The education sector is crucial to progress and development across Europe. In addition to facilitating the knowledge and innovation that provides the basis of our society, the education sector employs around 15 million people in the EU and represents approximately 7% of the total workforce in Europe. Therefore, EFEE has a crucial role to play in promoting the best interests of its members at the European level.
