The Theme of the conference concentrates on the need to gain an understanding of the approaches and methodologies adopted to Bridge the Skills gap facing us all. To understand and appreciate the differing measures adopted in order to tackle this issue - collaboration between education and training and employers / enterprises - the shift to competency based learning to name just a few of the challenges facing European VET. Moreover the Conference will consider differing approaches to the Transfer of innovation, ideas, models of learning which will contribute to the growing need for the 'transferability of skills' necessary within a Europe of 'Knowledge'.
This year there will be a shift in the programme structure from plenary sessions towards the more interactive opportunities of exchanging ideas and experiences, namely workshops, presentations and round tables. Please take a look at the provisional programme of the Conference.
We have an early bird registration available for the conference delegates till 1st of July 2005.
