Do you wish to learn more about education and training policy and practice across Europe? You can do all this if you apply by 14 October for an EU grant to participate in study visits.
The study visits, coordinated by Cedefop on behalf and in cooperation with the European Commission, are addressed to those who are responsible for the development of education and vocational training policies at local, regional or national levels. They welcome, among others, directors of education and vocational training establishments, guidance centres and validation and accreditation centres; teacher trainers; education and training inspectors; and representatives of employers associations and trade unions. A survey of 2008/09 study visits shows that 96 % of participants are very satisfied with their experience in the programme.
The next application round, to run until 12:00 noon Central European Time on 14 October 2011 concerns study visits scheduled between March and June 2012. A total of 106 visits hosted by 26 countries will take place during this period.
