Education and training in the Member States
There are a wealth of sources providing the latest information on education and training in EU Member States.Among organisations working on education and training, two of the most important are Eurydice (the information network on education in Europe) and Cedefop (the European centre for the development of vocational training).
Countries participating in the Education and Training 2010 work programme produce national progress reports every two years which form the basis of a joint report by the Council and the Commission. A key element of the last reports was the progress made in putting in place national lifelong learning strategies.
Participating countries are also monitored regularly via an agreed set of indicators and benchmarks, with results published annually in a report titled 'Progress towards the Lisbon Objectives in education and Training – Indicators and Benchmarks'.
