|Two-year study and analysis project involving partners from 6 European
Member States. Main topic to be examined: Effective processes for the acquisition
of qualifications for lifelong learning, with the focus on processes of
school to work transition through vocational education and training. Specifically
the following objectives are targeted:
1. to analyse research data and studies at European, national and regional level in order to identify and specify structures and agencies efficiently fostering the acquisition of qualifications for lifelong learning;
2. to search for and specify particular examples of 'good practice';
3. to develop a framework for the acquisition of qualifications for lifelong learning;
4. to draw up recommendations for policy and decision makers at European, national and regional levels;
5. to develop and implement a dissemination strategy so as to increase awareness among VET practitioners of innovative developments fostering lifelong learning through vocational education and training.
In the first stage a series of national reports will be produced including the identification of examples of good practice in the partner countries drawing on a range of different national, political, sectoral and operational contexts. Indicators in order to assess the effectiveness of processes of acquisition of qualifications for lifelong learning will be developed jointly by the project team.
In the second stage an overarching synthesised report will be produced exploring 'models of good practice' emphasising common grounds and differences in structures, approaches and cultures at a European, national, and regional level and through different occupational sectors. A framework for the acquisition of qualifications for lifelong learning will be produced. These models will be disseminated through a series of regional, national and international meetings and inform the advice offered to policy makers and planners as well as practitioners in the field of vocational education and training.
