How to make vocational education more attractive?

Despite improvements, adult learning still needs to become more attractive, inclusive, accessible and flexible, states European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) in its new briefing note 'Encouraging adult learning'.

The Bruges communiqué, part of the framework for the European Union’s policy on vocational education and training (VET), set out a vision to make continuing VET more attractive, inclusive, accessible, and flexible. Agreed in December 2010, the European Commission, Member States and social partners endorsed the communiqué vision in June 2015 in the Riga conclusions.

Cedefop's briefing note aims to clarify the trends in adult learning and the ways to make the Bruges vision a reality. The document is available as a PDF and eBook at Cedefop website.
