For more than 20 years, Cedefop has managed the study visits of the Leonardo da Vinci programme, on behalf of and in close collaboration with the European Commission and national liaison officers.
The programme provides a forum for discussion, exchange and learning on themes of common interest at EU level and serves three main objectives:
- enabling participants to improve their understanding of specific aspects of vocational training policy and themes of common interest in other countries;
- continuing exchange of advice, ideas and information between all those participating in the programme, including both the visitors and the hosts;
- enriching the flow of information between Member States and at Community level.
Examining some figures and the participants views, the publications summarise the facts, experiences and impressions of the implementation of the programme in 2005 and in 2006
