Priorities for enhanced European cooperation in vocational education and training for the period 2011-2020 - Council Conclusions

The Council met on 18 and 19 November has agreed that cooperation under the Copenhagen process should be given fresh impetus.

As the Copenhagen process is an integral part of the "ET2020" strategic framework, objectives in the VET field should remain consistent with the overall objectives laid down in that framework. Furthermore, when reviewing the Copenhagen process, account should be taken of both the experience to date and new challenges, as well as of the evolving political context over the coming decade 2011-2020, particularly in the light of the Europe 2020 Strategy.

Member States are invited to consider adoption of the following:

1. A global vision for VET in 2020;
2. Strategic objectives for the period 2011-2020, together with a number of supporting transversal objectives;
3. Principles underlying the governance and ownership of the Copenhagen Process;
4. Short-term deliverables for the first four years (2011-2014).

Cedefop will continue to support policy development and implementation.
