Cedefop Workplan 2016
Cedefop, the EU agency supporting development and implementation of vocational education and training policy, is a tripartite agency steered by governments, employers and employee representatives as well as the Commission. Its 2016 work programme reflects the plan to support the Riga conclusions and the skills roadmap, for a more qualified and competitive European workforce. The 2016 work programme reflects some rationalisation of Cedefop’s work to make better use of its capacity and expertise. It also reflects steps to strengthen Cedefop capability to support policy and decision-making by developing its role as a “knowledge broker.” Some key issues are: recognising the variety of learning environments, the formal as well as non-formal education and training settings.
