Initial and continuing vocational education and training is currently undergoing deep-seated change. The shortage of skilled workers, demographic development and the value placed on vocational education and training in relation to other educational areas both in Germany as well as in international comparative terms are all future issues in which VET will need to re-position itself. For reasons of social responsibility, every single person will need to be integrated into this process. Nobody must be forgotten.
This is why the motto for the 6th BIBB Vocational Education and Training Congress will be "Developing competences - opening up opportunities".
Two of Cedefop's experts will be participating at this event.
Ms Isabelle Le Mouillour will take part in the panel discussion about credit systems and conditions for their use within lifelong learning.
Ms Maria Todorova will present insights from the current work of Cedefop's training of trainers network (TTnet).
