Cedefop organises a validation workshop to discuss the preliminary findings of the ongoing research on the role of VET in reducing early leaving from education and training. Selected policies and measures from fifteen European countries are examined in-depth during this second year of the research.
Key stakeholders and policy makers from Europe will debate on a set of success indicators and criteria for policy transfer to different countries and contexts.
The findings of this project aim to support the European Commission, Member States, social partners and other stakeholders in their effort to implement EU policies to reduce early school leaving and to achieve the EU target by 2020.
The conclusions of this workshop together with the findings of the study will be published in 2016 in a Cedefop research paper and two policy briefs, one for national and local policy makers and another one for EU level policy makers.
Participation to this event is by invitation only.
