The study focusses on some of the weak points of the education and qualification systems for elderly in Bulgaria and the possibilities for their improvement in order to widen the potential for the integration of elderly in the labour force.
The study is based on the results of a study of some leading tendencies in the evolution of socio-demographic characteristic of elderly labour force in Bulgaria for the period 2001-2021 including possibilities for remote work and digital skills during the pandemic. To achieve a fuller and more objective evaluation, an international comparison was made with selected European countries (for example, Greece, Hungary, Czechia and Sweden). The analysis includes some indicators of general and age-specific levels of economic activity, working-age population replacement rates, age and educational structures of the labour force and inactive persons and others.
