The objective of the seminar was to raise awareness on issues related to the integration of young people into the labour market by exploring and discussing the findings of the study visits (53) in the following areas:
- supporting flexible learning pathways;
- transition from education and training to the world of work;
- developing entrepreneurship.
The seminar brought together around 90 organisers and participants of the study visits, representatives of initiatives identified as examples of good practice during the visits, experts on the themes and representatives of the national agencies. They are directors of education and vocational training institutions, educational and vocational training inspectors, head teachers, teacher trainers, directors of guidance centres, representatives of the chambers of commerce, directors of validation/ accreditation centres from different European countries participating in the programme.
The outcomes of the seminar will be part of a publication that will be disseminated in the second half of 2011.
