Abstract: The insertion of young people on the labour market poses a real challenge for countries where youth unemployment exceeds by far that of adults, and the education and training of young people should take into account the current and future requirements of the labour market. The article underlines the importance of education and training of young people (pupils and students) for an active life in the labour market, the reduction of school abandonment rate amid the distrust of the population in the education system, but also economic and social shortcomings. In this respect, we present the current situation of young people without jobs and identify their needs on the labour market, with particular emphasis on vocational training programmes, tailored to the requirements of employers. Linking education to the prevailing requirements of the labour market in order to reduce the unemployment rate of young people implies the need to develop partnerships between businesses and educational establishments, vocational guidance and counselling of pupils and students, placing the emphasis on the applicability of knowledge into practice.
