Despite being recognised as among the most vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic , refugees across the EU and beyond are stepping up to support local communities in fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic, a reminder that – vulnerable or not – refugees have skills that may be of added value to receiving countries and their local labour market needs.
Cedefop’s community of apprenticeship experts launched an internal consultation on how European countries are managing apprenticeships in the current health emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The European inventory of lifelong guidance systems and practices is now online. The inventory is the most complete source of information on career guidance systems in Europe.
A Cedefop online database provides information on how apprenticeships are financed in the EU Member States.
Cedefop, together with the European Commission, ETF, OECD, ILO and UNESCO have released a shared vision of the strategic role of career guidance in enabling learning and labour market integration.
Cedefop's VET toolkit for tackling early leaving was presented in a dedicated workshop (Workshop B: Early School leaving Cedefop’s Toolkit).
The external factors that have an impact on apprenticeship and the relevant design and delivery responses were discussed at a joint Cedefop/OECD symposium, on 7 October in Paris.
Independent career development experts from across Europe, representatives from the European Commission and the European Training Foundation met on 19 and 20 September in Rome to debate how people will be supported in their careers in the post-2020 period.
Cedefop has started a project to investigate how vocational education and training (VET) can effectively contribute to creating labour mobility opportunities for adult refugees.
