Application round for Study visits programme 2012/13 is closing tomorrow at 12 noon CET!

Participants of the study visits programme believe that it is a real opportunity to learn about education and training policies and practice in Europe, to get new ideas for initiating change in their institutions, to improve existing practice and to enhance key competences. The effects of such experience are long lasting and the impact is considerable.

The second application round to participate in study visits for educational and vocational training specialists and decision-makers is now open. It covers study visits scheduled between March and June 2013.

126 study visits will take place in 30 European countries and will cover topics of common interest to those responsible for educational and vocational training policies at local, regional and national levels, including directors of education and vocational training establishments, guidance centres and validation and accreditation centres; teacher trainers; education and training inspectors as well as representatives of employers’ associations and trade unions.

The visits will explore about 30 topics: among others cooperation between education and training institutions, enterprises and local communities; acquisition of key competences (language teaching and learning, education for active citizenship and sustainable development and ICT use); equal opportunities for disadvantaged groups; transition from education and training to the world of work.

Interested candidates should consult national agencies in their countries and submit their applications online at the study visits website by 12 noon Central European Time on 12 October 2012.
