CEDEFOP Workshop

Publiée le 9th -10th October 2012

An upcoming workshop in Brussels grapples with negative perceptions about vocational pathways, and how to change them.

Vocational education and training (VET) is a cornerstone of European education and training systems. Research shows that it benefits individuals in many ways - in particular youth, when managing transition to the labour market. Trends in skills demand point to jobs requiring medium-level qualifications – i.e. mostly VET qualifications – remaining the core of employment in Europe.

Yet VET suffers from a poor image in several countries. In fact, it is now attracting fewer students than in the recent past. If something is not done to reverse this trend, skill shortages may soon emerge.

The workshop, organised by Cedefop in collaboration with the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee, will bring together policy makers, researchers, social partners and practitioners to debate policies that can increase the attractiveness of initial VET across Europe. Special attention will be paid to how mobility can make VET more attractive for potential learners.

In this workshop there will be also a half day session dedicated to learning mobility on 10 October. The Euroapprenticeship network will be presented in order to show benefits of and barriers to mobility for apprentices from the viewpoint of hosting and sending companies/SMEs, and how mobility contributes to increasing the attractiveness of IVET.
