This is the 21 st annual edition of the Employment in Europe report, which has become one of the main tools of the European Commission in supporting Member States in the analysis, formulation and implementation of their employment policies.
Some 20 European experts (European Commission, social partners, researchers, guidance providers, trainers and administrators) were invited by Cedefop to attend this event.
The joint efforts of Member States, social partners and the European Commission to modernise vocational education and training for a more cohesive and competitive Europe have started to pay off: training has become firmly entrenched in the Lisbon Strategy. But more needs to be done. Vocational education must be seen as both an investment in the future of young people, and a source of learning opportunities for adults.
... are among the May 2008 acquisitions of Cedefop's library.
Today Cedefop launches its new visual identity and logo, which will be applied to all its activities.
The European Training Thesaurus (ETT) is a controlled vocabulary of reference for vocational education and training (VET) in Europe, covering topics of the Education and Training 2010 agenda such as lifelong learning, quality of training, training systems, teachers and trainers, qualifications, vocational guidance, and others.
