Cedefop’s priorities and objectives and the Europass platform were presented at a workshop organised by Greece’s state scholarship foundation (IKY) and the national agency for the Erasmus+ programme, on 19 February.

The workshop aimed at motivating several agencies and organisations to participate and implement Erasmus+ activities.

Senior expert Corinna Frey emphasised the added value that Cedefop brings to Thessaloniki, its host city. She explained to the 900 participants how the agency’s work, which feeds into the European policy process, eventually interlinks with the orientations of the European lifelong learning programme, in particular Erasmus+.

Senior expert Philippe Tissot and trainee Eftychia Koletsou moderated a workshop with a detailed presentation of the Europass platform, which helps European citizens communicate their skills and qualifications effectively when looking for a job or training.

Participants included students, teachers and labour market representatives.
