Curriculum innovation and reform: policies and practices, a workshop to be held in Thessaloniki on 9-10 November, aims to examine how recent policies on curriculum reform are affecting learning and teaching. The workshop will look at the implementation of outcome-oriented approaches to curriculum development – particularly, but not exclusively, in vocational education and training – across Europe and beyond.
This week, 5-6 October, Cedefop is welcoming some 150 participants to its Agora conference on Qualifications for Lifelong Learning and Employability. The focus is on the changes in how qualifications are awarded, recognised and renewed.
On 17-18 November in Brussels Cedefop and the European Commission’s DG Education and Culture are presenting two new European tools: the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework (EQARF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET). This technical launch of the new tools aims to examine how best to involve all stakeholders in implementing them, and to ensure that all related measures operate in tandem.
