Skills and vocational training

A workshop held in Brussels on 9 October brought over 60 practitioners and researchers together to exchange and learn lessons on how informed sector and trade policies can support more and better job creation, and influence policy and programme development.   
  The European Union has signed agreements on two cooperation projects with Cuba amounting to €25 million. First, the €15 million Transcultura project will establish a Cultural Training Hub in Havana, to provide a boost to training and skills in the cultural heritage and creative industries in the Caribbean. It will also help increase economic opportunities and cultural cooperation in the Caribbean and between the region and the EU. Unesco will be in charge of running the project.
  DEVCO and the ILO are organizing a workshop to assess experiences and lessons on how informed sector and trade policies can support more and better job creation.
DEVCO and the International Labour Organization’s International Training Centre (ITCILO) recently organised a training to strengthen EU staffs’ capacities to promote the creation of more inclusive and decent employment, particularly for youth. The recent training, ‘Creating more and better jobs for youth’, was held over 5 days in Brussels for EU staff at both HQ and EU Delegation level. 
The EU funded, Research, Network and Support Facility (RNSF), has recently ended. It has left an impressive body of research on the informal economy that should provide essential insights and policy considerations on this complex development issue for long to come.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the European Commission recently organised the workshop, ‘Working for a healthier future’, on promoting sustainable employment in the health sector in developing countries.
