A bridge to the future
European policy for vocational education and training 2002-10
Convinced of the need to modernise education and training systems, as part of the Lisbon strategy, the European Union launched the Copenhagen process in 2002 to strengthen cooperation in vocational education and training (VET). The Copenhagen process has coordinated technical and political support for voluntary cooperation and brought together the European Commission and participating countries and European social partners to work on common objectives, priorities and benchmarks for VET. As Europe embarks on a new strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth from now to 2020, this... report examines the achievements and impact of Europe’s efforts to modernise VET and ease mobility for learning and working.
