New guiding principles and policy handbook on professional development of trainers in VET
The guiding principles are a contribution of the European Commission, Cedefop and the thematic working group on professional development of trainers in VET to the objective set in the Bruges communiqué of collecting good practice and developing guiding principles on changing roles, competences and professional development of VET teachers and trainers (Council of the European Union; European Commission, 2010). The guiding principles give policy pointers on how to support VET trainers in companies in developing their competences. They are addressed to education and training policy- and decision-makers, illustrated by concrete examples of practice from Member States. These can be further translated into actions for all stakeholders, depending on national situations and contexts.
