A new Cedefop study on the economic and social cost of low-skilled adults in the EU seeks to provide evidence for policy-makers to design and implement policies tailored to this particular group.
The Estonian Ministry of Education and Research, Cedefop and Foundation Innove are co-organising the first European guidance week, in Tallinn on 26-29 September.
Cedefop is cooperating to the organisation of the 7th EU presidency conference of lifelong guidance policy on 27-28/09/2017, organised by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research in the context of a joint event with the Estonian Presidency.
The government supports Estonian as a second language and foreign language learning by learners in VET and higher education, to ensure better career opportunities and mobility.
The government aims to reduce the share of adults aged 25 to 64 without professional or vocational education from 28.5% in 2016 to less than 25% by 2020, and to increase their participation in lifelong learning. An obstacle for achieving this goal is low motivation and lack of key competences.
At an international conference organised by Italy’s Regione Umbria on 10 May in Brussels, Cedefop Director James Calleja said that ‘recognition, reputation and employability are the key indicators of quality in adult education and learning.’
Cedefop’s Policy Learning Forum (PLF) on apprenticeships is linked to the Thematic Country Reviews on Apprenticeships (TCRs) and will be held on 7 and 8 September in Thessaloniki.
