CEDEFOP Flash, n5 Jul 1989
On June 5, 1989, the Council of Ministers for Employment and Social Affairs of the European Economic Community passed a detailed and comprehensive Resolution on continuing vocational training in Europe. Some of the possible consequences of the resolution are the following: (1) the prospects for the implementation of the Resolution are highly dependent on whether and to what extent the responsible bodies in each country are able to identify themselves with the will of the members of the Council; (2) two instruments can be used for the enforcement of the Council's intentions--funding and an action program; (3) investigation should continue concerning in which occupational fields and with what content and training objectives priority investment in continuing training should be made, how the burden of investment will be spread among public and private sectors, and how disadvantaged persons can benefit from training opportunities; and (4) projects in vocational training and regional development, continuing training for small and medium businesses, cost, and continuity of training for the unemployed are being carried out by the Council. (The text of the Resolution is included in this report.) (KC)
