In this issue, we present the findings of the first Cedefop opinion survey on vocational education and training (VET) in Europe.
Malta’s Minister for Education Evarist Bartolo, whose country holds the rotating EU Presidency in the first semester of 2017, tells us that education must be considered strategic investment to human capital.
Cedefop Deputy Director Mara Brugia writes about the roots of today’s European VET policy in the Treaty of Rome, as 2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the treaty that laid the foundation of the European Union.
Also, don’t miss articles on:
- VET in the 21st century;
- skills and employment for refugees and asylum seekers;
- and skill mismatch in the European labour market.
The Member State contribution this time comes from France.
And, as usual, you can browse through the latest Cedefop publications and upcoming events.
