Abstract: It is unanimously agreed on that technological progress exceeds as rate the possibilities of the economy and society to generate new employment opportunities for the labour force. If, in this equation we include also the rate at which education and in particular institutions dedicated to vocational/professional training can adjust their educational supply, it turns out that in the absence of some measures and policies dedicated not only to (re)skilling the working age labour force on all segments the highest difficulties are faced by the youths. Initiatives, programmes, and actions launched at European Union level or at national level have the aim of training youths in new competences, based on a new educational and vocational training model, a new model of lifelong learning, as they are all elements required for maintaining them on the labour market in the knowledge-based economy. The change speed of the knowledge-based economy has as effect the much swifter depreciation of skills. In order to meet efficiently these changes, the youths must be able to update permanently their competences. The paper presents a brief analysis of some elements that characterise students’ educational guidance and mobility, but also some competences and skills required for increasing the insertion degree of youths on the labour market and for social inclusion.
