The recent joint study by Cedefop and Eurofound, “Contribution of collective bargaining to the development of continuing training” (see link below) - one of the first to address the issue of how social dialogue affects opportunities for continuing training – demonstrates that collective agreements have a largely positive impact on employee training. But it also shows that training provision in small and medium enterprises, and training offered to workers over 45, is still lagging behind.
Cedefop and Eurofound held a joint seminar on 9-10 February at Cedefops premises in Thessaloniki to discuss the conclusions of the study. The seminar focused on the main question the study set out to answer: whether and under what circumstances collective agreements can lead to more and better continuing training provision.
