Our main story is on microcredentials, a new upskilling trend. We look at the interim findings of a Cedefop study on microcredentials for labour market education and training, and we pick the brains of two non-European experts on the subject.
Also, in this issue:
- University of Zurich Professor Philipp Gonon talks about vocational education and training and apprenticeships as tools for greenification of the economy;
- more on the topic from the discussions at the joint Cedefop/OECD symposium ‘Apprenticeships for greener economies and societies’;
- what the joint visit of European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas and European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights Nicolas Schmit means for Cedefop’s role in the ‘skills revolution’;
- an article on the key elements in promoting continuing vocational education and training and adult learning;
- the ‘Occupation in focus’ is construction workers who withstood relatively well the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic;
- the Member States page showcases apprentice mobility in France, the current EU Presidency holder;
