Currently, in Germany only cross-sectional information about competencies of children, youths and adults is available. Very little is known about the development of competencies and about participation in education and training over the life course. The German National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) will close this gap. Roughly 60,000 individuals will be investigated, in a first step, over the years 2009 to 2013.
In stage 6, "Vocational Training and Transitions into the Labour Market", more than 10,000 youths (9th graders in autumn 2010) will be followed for several years. First results are expected at the end of the year 2011.
