The period 2005-2007 represents the second phase of the implementation of the Education and Training 2010 Work Programme moving from setting up of objectives to implementation. Work undertaken at the European level within the Education and Training 2010 work programme continues to support Member States reforms by providing common reference tools and supporting mutual exchange and learning.
During 2006 and 2007, the European Parliament and Council adopted Recommendations in the areas of key competences, quality of mobility, quality assurance in higher education and establishing the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning.
The Council also adopted conclusions on efficiency and equity in education and training, following the Commission's communication on this subject, and adopted conclusions on a coherent framework of indicators and benchmarks which set out 16 core indicators for measuring progress.
