The challenge of how to implement an e-skills agenda for the 21st Century will be the main topic of the European e-Skills 2008 Conference, “Implementing a long term e-skills strategy in Europe”, to be held at Cedefop’s conference centre in Thessaloniki, Greece, on 9-10 October 2008.
To mark the German Presidency of the Council of the EU, Cedefop has produced two publications: Vocational education and training in German: short description and Spotlight on VET: Germany.
Three years after its official launch in February 2005, the Europass website(1), developed and managed by Cedefop, has reached 10 million visits, with 2.5 million curricula vitae completed online and another 2.5 million CV templates downloaded.
Regional innovation and development depend on dialogue, cooperation, networking and learning between all social and economic actors in a region. The 12 case studies collected in this book cover a range of contexts from manufacturing, regional universities, women’s cooperatives to promoting social cohesion in multicultural communities. Each case can be understood against the background of the other cases, enabling learning from differences.
New publications available in Cedefop's library now include the overview of every Member State's education and training system in 2008
