Detailed Work Programme on the Follow-Up of the Objectives of Education and Training Systems in Europe.
Commission of the European Communities, Brussels (Belgium).
This report describes policy cooperation in the Education and Training Area in the European Union (EU) in response to the Lisbon strategy and provides a comprehensive plan to respond to the challenges of the knowledge society, globalization, and the enlargement of the EU. It focuses on these three objectives: (1) improving the quality and effectiveness of education and training systems in the EU; (2) facilitating the access of all to education and training systems; and (3) opening up education and training systems to the wider world. (The following goals should be achieved in education and training by 2010: (1) Europe will be recognized as a world-wide reference for the quality and relevance of its systems and institutions; (2) systems in Europe will be compatible enough to allow citizens to move between them and to take advantage of their diversity; (3) holders of qualifications, knowledge, and skills acquired anywhere in the EU will be able to get them effectively validated throughout the Union for the purpose of career and further learning; (4) Europeans of all ages will have access to lifelong learning; and (5) Europe will be open to cooperation for mutual benefits with all other regions and should be the most-favored destination of students, scholars, and researchers from other world regions.) Includes a timetable to start follow-up work for objectives, a model to be used in the follow-up of quantitative indicators, and illustrative statistical data. (MO)
