The workshop held this week in Cedefop, Testing the European Qualifications Framework, proved to be particularly fruitful. Project promoters and stakeholders reported on the challenges that the EQF must overcome by 2010 to become a useful “translation tool” between various kinds of qualifications.
Cedefop, along with the ETF, has helped to prepare the Fourth Europe and Central Asia (ECA) Education Conference, The Missing link: Rethinking the Role of Technical Vocational Education in Upper Secondary Education, which is being held in Tirana, Albania, on 24/25 October 2007.
Cedefop and the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) are jointly organising a seminar, The role of social partners in continuing vocational training in Europe: reviewing practices and sharing challenges. The seminar will be held at Cedefop’s premises in Thessaloniki, Greece on 9 and 10 February 2009.
