The overall basis for EU-wide co-operation in education and training is set out in the "ET 2020" strategic framework adopted in May 2009. Below you can find a compendium of key documents on EU policies in education and training.
With actions at all levels of education and training, there are four objectives to ET 2020: making lifelong learning and mobility a reality; improving the quality and efficiency of education and training; promoting equity, social cohesion and active citizenship; and enhancing creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Activities also contribute to the Bologna intergovernmental process in the field of higher education.
This compendium includes official documents from the three main EU decision-making bodies – the European Commission, the Council and the European Parliament.
