Policy

The High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) took place from 10-19 July 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York. The Forum focused on the theme of “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.”
In the continuously changing world of work, it’s important to integrate the ongoing stream of new technological advancements into our daily lives, as well as to prepare for a changing society. A modern vocational training system must be ready to respond. One of the key questions is which skills will be needed in the future and how to prepare them for the labour market. The Work-Based Learning TOOLKIT offers one way of doing this.

Policymakers in ETF partner country Bosnia and Herzegovina are looking at ways to improve employability, skills anticipation and matching, and the transition to work.

 

A small group representing employment agencies and labour market and statistic institutions took part in a recent learning programme at the ETF, with a particular focus on the important role of public employment services in skills needs identification.

 

The overall objective of this 24-month project called "Development of Qualification Framework for lifelong learning", which started on 7th March 2016 is contribution to strengthening quality and efficiency of the education system including provision of adult learning and contribution to the comparability of education systems in Bosnia and Herzegovina with education systems in the EU based on EU strategy 2020 and EQF.

The High Level Group on Education and Training will meet in Tallinn today and tomorrow to discuss the future of the Erasmus+ programme, digital education and shared values in the European Union. It is the first event of the Ministry of Education and Research marking the start of the incoming Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
