This is to inform you about a call for applications for participation in study visits on vocational training in sports and leisure sector.
Cedefop is a European Union agency dealing with the development of vocational training. One of our activities is to coordinate, on behalf of the European Commission, the Community study visits programme for people in charge of vocational training.
Herewith, we are inviting representatives of employers and trade unions, policy makers, experts, teachers and trainers, HR managers, researchers, local and regional authorities, and national public authorities to participate in one of the study visits on vocational training in sports and leisure sector that will take place in the second semester of 2006:

- Group 50 - Le sport au service de lducation et de lanimation, France 16-20 October 2006 (working language: French)
By taking part in study visits, participants get a picture of the current theory and practice in the field and have the opportunity to exchange experiences and views with participants from various countries across Europe.
Cedefop provides a grant to participants as a financial contribution to their travel and accommodation expenses. If representatives of your organisation in charge of vocational training are interested to contribute to and benefit from this kind of professional exchange, they are kindly invited to fill out the enclosed application form and return it to Cedefop by September 12, 2006.
