This paper aims to provide an excursus on the available statistical informations on the employment dynamics of the education sector in Italy and in Veneto in recent years. This dynamic is certainly not brilliant, when placed in the European framework. The analysis is based on the ordinary statistical sources and on the administrative sources newly accessible from INPS Observatory on public employees, MISE (Ministry of Economy), MIUR (Ministry of Education University and Research) and from the employment mandatory Communications. The sources agree that the employment in the education sector (up to university) growths in recent years (post 2014), because of the increase of teachers in support of pupils with disabilities in the public school; for the university, however, there is a sure decline. In prospective, the employment in the education sector will have to face both a high turnover, caused by the current high average age of the teaching staff, and the expected decrease in number of students.
