European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, Thessaloniki (Greece).
The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) moved forward on the four major themes of its medium-term priorities in 2000, which were the following: (1) promoting competencies and lifelong learning; (2) facilitating new ways of learning for a changing society; (3) supporting employment and competitiveness; and (4) improving European understanding and transparency. In tackling this spectrum of activities, the CEDEFOP's accomplishment fell in these two areas: developing knowledge and expertise--encompassing the themes and content within the four priority themes; and serving customers, partners, and policymakers, and fostering research cooperation. In the area of developing knowledge and expertise, a reporting system on lifelong learning was developed; final editing work was completed on key qualifications; a conference on the identification, assessment, and recognition of non-formal learning was conducted; efforts to improve transparency of qualifications were made; and a mechanism to promote mobility was created. In the area of serving its audience, work was completed on reporting on developments in vocational education and training in the European Union (EU); key data on vocational training in the EU were reported; the first report on vocational training policy for the EU was published; an electronic library and information service was improved, and additional research and information exchange was conducted. (Four appendixes include a list of CEDEFOP publications for 2000; human resources of CEDEFOP; staff and financial allocations for 2000; and management board members.) (KC)
