In the past, no specific importance had to be attached to a systematic coordination between the educational system and the employment system, due to high unemployment. But the replacement of baby boomer generations by low birth rates on the labor market during the next twenty years gives the acquirement of specific needs-oriented qualification profiles an increased importance for a smooth entry into the labor market.
