European qualification framework for training: proposal from the European trade union movement

European Qualitiy Framework

The European Training Alliance was launched by a joint declaration of the European social partners (ETUC, BUSINESSEUROPE, UEAPME and CEEP), the European Commission and the EU Council Presidency in July 2013. This was underlined by the Council declaration of EU Member States. A sudden sea change has recently taken place at domestic and European level; on the one hand, training places are to be expanded and their quality improved; on the other hand, young people are to be supported in the transition from school to the world of work.

The accompanying brochure is right up-to-date and available in 6 languages. In it, the European Trade Unions Congress (ETUC) specifically argues for the implementation of an all-encompassing, European quality framework for vocational education and training built on common standards. The brochure also includes the latest developments in training strategies at domestic and European level and assessments of the contribution made by previous EU instruments.
The survey also comprises a brief report on the most recent developments in training in 20 European countries and 4 European sectors.
