European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, Thessaloniki (Greece).
The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) aids the European Commission in encouraging promotion and development of vocational education and training (VET) at the community level. The work program for 1999 document has three sections. In section 1, "Developing knowledge and expertise," 12 projects relate to these themes: promote competencies and lifelong learning, monitor developments in VET in Member States, and serve European mobility and exchanges. In section 2, "Exchange and dialogue: stimulating debate," are the following projects: the study visits program to encourage exchanges of experience and information between experts through visits to Member States; and "Agora" Thessaloniki to provide opportunity for the worlds of research, social partners, and policy development to confront each other. As a partner in policy development, CEDEFOP provides the European Commission, Member States, and social partners with information for discussions. It encourages comparative research and analysis and disseminates information on results through the European Research Directory, a second report (to be published in 2000) on VET research in Europe, and bringing together transnational networks on VET. In section 3, "Keeping people informed: information and dissemination," are CEDEFOP's publications and information services: nonperiodical publications (descriptions of national VET systems and reports on project outcomes); periodicals; Library and Documentation Service; Electronic Training Village; and its Internet site. (Appendixes include medium-term priorities ,1997-2000; information and communication policy; and organization chart.) (YLB)
