Apprenticeships can become a driver for recovery and the green and digital transformations, provided some issues of identity and a number of ambiguities are cleared, Cedefop Executive Director Jürgen Siebel told a high-level conference of experts and policy-makers.
Cedefop has launched a feasibility study for a survey of vocational education and training (VET) teachers and trainers, aiming to serve the long-term EU strategy for green, digital, inclusive and fair economies.
The joint Cedefop/OECD publication on the next steps for apprenticeship looks at the future of apprenticeship from the perspective of emerging policy objectives, new approaches to education and training and external megatrends.
Cedefop invites leading experts to submit papers for a reference publication on monitoring and evaluation of lifelong guidance systems and services for adults, in a lifelong learning perspective, by 18 January 2021.
At least two-thirds of adults in every EU Member State agree that their government should prioritise investment in adult learning, a new Cedefop survey says. Across the EU, people believe that adult learning and training will become more important to career progression over the next 10 years, an argument strengthened by the 88% of adults who said that their job requires them to keep their skills constantly up to date.
Cedefop and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) held the Third Policy Learning Forum (PLF) on upskilling pathways, a platform bringing together countries to exchange practice and explore common challenges in upskilling adults with low level of skills, on 5 and 6 November.
Cedefop's CareersNet, the network of independent experts in lifelong career guidance and career development, held its annual meeting on 8 and 9 October, in cooperation with the German Federal Employment Agency.
High investment, high involvement’ workplaces have the best outcomes for workers and employers according to a recent large-scale survey of company practices across Europe. Just 20% of EU organisations fall into this category – bundling practices that increase employee autonomy, facilitate employee voice and promote training and learning.
EU agencies Cedefop and Eurofound will present the results of the European company survey 2019 (ECS 2019) at a virtual launch event titled ‘Workplace practices unlocking employee potential’ on 13 October.
Starting the school year 2020/21 in the midst of a pandemic poses a host of new challenges for schools, teachers and training providers.
