The paper presents some findings of the ASEM deep study results on workplace learning. It provides empirical data on choice of young people to acquire learning outcomes either through formal, non-formal or information setting. The comparison with other age cohorts is also considered in two sectors - education and IT.
The immediate context is coloured by exploration of general reasons of selection of educational settings against the backdrop of the European policy initiatives for adapting learning provision to individuals' needs. The conclusion offers a summary and suggests some analytical questions and hypothesis of possible intervention for improvement as part of the doctoral student thesis.
