European Training Foundation, Turin (Italy).
This document describes the proposed 2003 activities of the European Training Foundation (ETF) to support vocational education and training reform in non-European Union (EU) countries in the context of the EU's external relations program. The activities listed cover these four main groups of countries across three continents: the Mediterranean partners; the countries of the Western Balkans; the New Independent States and Mongolia, and the future member states of the European Union. Activities appear under the following major headings: (1) support to EU programs and dissemination of EU policies; (2) provision and analysis of information and data in support of the Commission and partner countries; and (3) development activities. (With the expertise and assistance of the ETF, each of the partner countries must address critical issues of quality and the transfer of qualifications and skills between sectors and countries as a precondition for lifelong learning and increased mobility. Because of the differences between the four groups of countries, the ETF does not offer standard products or services, but provides a "tailor-made" approach to each region and partner country.) The document also includes information about the Tempus program, activity-based budgeting, and an annex describing joint work between the ETF and the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP), with special reference to candidate countries.
