On 31 January Cedefop is holding a seminar, Individual Learning Accounts, an incentive for financing continuing vocational education and training, which will present the results of work on financing continuing training through such accounts.
When setting objectives for education and training, and when defining qualifications, policy-makers are beginning to focus less on input factors (duration, location, method) and more on what a learner knows and is able to do at the end of a learning process – i.e. on learning outcomes. This gradual shift has underpinned many related EU policy initiatives over the past few years.
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.
