German Federal Inst. for Vocational Training Affairs, Berlin (Germany).
Representatives from 13 Central and Eastern European countries, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development met for 2 days in Berlin to continue European Training Foundation (ETF) efforts to design a methodology for formulating standards in vocational training (VT) to be used as a framework for developing VT in Central and Eastern Europe. The objectives of the meeting were as follows: presentation of case studies of development of VT in the Czech Republic, Russian Federation, and Hungary and analysis of their different approaches and procedures; creation of a model for standards development and determination of the essential advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches; and formulation of proposals for continued support of the Central and Eastern European countries by the ETF in developing national vocational standards. After a comparative analysis of the case studies, a nine-step model approach to developing vocational standards was developed, and proposals for continued cooperation with the ETF were formulated.
