CEDEFOP new publication on VET dropouts: validation as a key?
The CEDEFOP has released a briefing note on “Keeping young people in (vocational) education: what works?”. The note underlines the fact that early leaving in VET is a challenge that has to be tackled comprehensively, together with labour market and social welfare issues. It also enhances validation of non-formal and informal learning as a tool to help young people to acquire VET qualifications, through strong partnerships between various stakeholders at regional and local levels.
