In 1999, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Education (CEDEFOP) Work Programme conducted a broad spectrum of activities on the following three themes: monitoring competence and lifelong learning; monitoring developments in the European Union's member states; and serving European mobility and exchanges. In tackling those themes, CEDEFOP conducted work falling under the following three headings: (1) developing knowledge; (2) exchange and dialogue; and (3) keeping people informed. Included among the CEDEFOP projects and activities conducted in 1999 under these headings were the following: preparation of a reference publication on key qualifications and curriculum renewal of vocational education and training (VET); examination of learning in small and medium enterprises; collection of key data on vocational training and on financing VET; establishment of a European forum for exchange of information on serving European mobility; creation of scenarios and strategies for VET in Europe; and continuation of the Study Visits Programme, which gives VET specialists the opportunity to examine specific VET systems and arrangements in other countries. (Appended are the following: list of CEDEFOP publications in 1999; CEDEFOP's staff situation as of December 31, 1999; CEDEFOP's 1999 staff and financial allocations; and list of CEDEFOP's management board members.)
