Medium Term Priorities, 2003-2006.
European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, Thessaloniki (Greece).
The European Center for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) intends to consolidate its statutory role of providing information together with reporting on and analyzing development of European Union (EU) Member States and at the European level. (Cedefop is EU's reference center for vocational education and training and provides information on and analyses of systems, policies, research, and practice.) These medium-term priorities set the strategic objectives for Cedefop's activities for 2003-06, which are as follows: improving access to learning, mobility, and social inclusion; enabling and valuing learning; and supporting networks and partnerships in an enlarged EU. These three strategic objectives give precise direction to the overarching strategic objective of promoting a European area of lifelong learning in an enlarged European Union. The strategic objectives and work priorities will be embedded in all areas of Cedefop's work but will be approached from different angles for different purposes. These five working areas will contribute to translating the strategic objectives into priority activities: developing research on VET; reporting and facilitating a concerted approach; exchange and supporting partners; information, communication, and documentation; and administration, facilities, and resources.
