  Learning in entreprises must become more inclusive

Learning in entreprises must become more inclusive

Companies wish to improve employees’ skills for a specific job; employees have an interest in developing skills that can generally raise their career and employment prospects. But can these potentially conflicting goals be balanced? Encouraging a company culture that make it easier for citizens to keep learning, and promotes corporate responsibility and social cohesion is a smart strategy for government. The success stories that were collected in Cedefop's recent publication, "Learning while working: Success stories in workplace learning" illustrate some of the ingenious solutions that have been devised by social partners working together with national, regional and local authorities. Here, Rocío Lardinois de la Torre, Cedefop’s project manager for in-company training, talks about the conclusions of the study.

EU policy conference: pace of reforming vocational education and training must be stepped up

EU policy conference: pace of reforming vocational education and training must be stepped up

"While not all of the Europe 2020 objectives will be solved through vocational education and training (VET), almost none of them will be solved on a sustainable basis without VET", said Cedefop’s Acting Director Christian Lettmayr, speaking at Cedefop’s conference on the future of VET policy (Brussels, 17 March). "Ultimately, the aim is to achieve close links between vocational education and training systems and the labour market for the benefit of both individuals and society at large. These are issues in which Cedefop will continue to provide support for policy-makers".
