Hannes Swoboda, MEP since 1996 and current President of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) group in the European Parliament, visited Cedefop on 23 January to exchange views on vocational education and training (VET) issues.
In a series of interviews to European media, new Cedefop Director James Calleja has outlined the organisation’s work and targets, and addressed issues such as unemployment and career guidance that are at the centre of European citizens’ concerns.
Education's 'crucial role' in the efforts to overcome the crisis Europe and its citizens are facing today is stressed by the current EU Presidency.
There are solutions to the ‘worrying situation with millions of jobs in Europe still remaining vacant while 27 million people are unemployed,’ according to Cedefop Director James Calleja.
Vocational education in a lifelong perspective and the VET systems in Germany and Austria were the themes of two interventions made by Cedefop Deputy Director Christian Lettmayr at the Global HR Forum 2013 in Seoul, South Korea (5-7 November).
