These two events are part of the country review of the skills anticipation and matching system for Slovakia and organised in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.
The dissemination meeting (April 4) provides national stakeholders with an overview of the main findings of the country review. Cedefop will present the results of the wide stakeholder consultation it conducted since the review started in 2017 and provide information on how other countries deal with typical challenges in skills governance. High level national stakeholders will engage in a panel discussion to identify possibly policy responses that could help strengthen skills governance in Slovakia.
The workshop following the dissemination meeting builds on Cedefop’s policy learning forum held on June 14 and 15 2018, where the need to develop and implement tracer studies and to reflect on the ways how to implement employer surveys was highlighted by Slovak participants. The aim of the one and a half day workshop is to give a practical introduction to the implementation of these surveys and illustrate their value for education and training, skills and labour market policy. It will provide theoretical and practical expertise needed to carry out tracer studies and employer surveys and illustrate good practice based on examples from European countries. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the governance of tracer studies and employers surveys, in terms of set-up, operating processes and effective use of results.
The workshop will be tailored to an audience of Slovak stakeholders and facilitated by national and international experts. The format is interactive and participants will be asked to work in groups to apply what they have learned. The ambition is to develop action plans which outline in practical terms how to go about implementing tracer studies and employer surveys in Slovakia and how the results they deliver could be used to strengthen skills governance in the country.
This event is restricted to invited participants.
