VET in Montenegro and the toolkits of Bruges Communiqué and Torino Process
This workshop will serve the purpose of kick-starting the Torino Process exercise in Montenegro and to validate the preliminary findings of the Bruges reporting with a representative group of national stakeholders.
Montenegro has been invited to take part in the 2012 round of the Torino Process. Since this is the first time that Montenegro will undertake this exercise, national stakeholders need to capture it as a tool for boosting the national policy dialogue on VET and for agreeing on mid-term vision, priorities and strategy for VET development, as well as for designing and evaluating home-grown VET policies, based on evidence and shared understanding. The Torino Process 2012 analytical framework, implementation modalities, deadlines, and expected outputs in Montenegro will be presented by the ETF and discussed with key stakeholders during the workshop that will serve as a kickoff of the exercise.
The Torino Process has been inspired by VET system reviews and learning processes at EU level, notably the Copenhagen/ Bruges process in VET. On 7 December 2010, European Ministers for VET, the European social partners and the European Commission adopted the Bruges Communiqué on enhanced European cooperation in VET for 2011-2020. The Communiqué defines common objectives for 2010 and an action plan for the coming years, combining national measures with European support. To steer the progress towards achieving the set objectives, in 2012 the EU Member States will take stock of achievements, gaps and shortfalls of the process and report back to the European Commission through CEDEFOP. As a candidate country, Montenegro has been invited to join the stocktaking exercise and the ETF has been given the mandate for coordinating it and providing technical support in the procedure in case the country deems this necessary. The workshop will provide an opportunity to share the draft findings of the national report with a wider group of VET stakeholders, as well as to receive external feedback on it by the ETF and EU experts to serve as inputs for improving the quality of the report before its finalisation.
The workshop will also give the chance for articulating and discussing the complementarities and the specificities of Bruges and Torino Process, while at the same time capitalizing on the collection of data, information and materials.
Participants will include representatives of the Ministry of Education and Sport, the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare, the Employment Agency, the VET Centre, VET schools and training centres, social partners, civil society organisations as well as EU experts and ETF staff.

Put simply, lifelong learning means that people can – and should have the opportunity to – learn throughout their lives.
Across the world, certain groups of people are still hard pressed to get the most out of their education and training system.
Partnership between the worlds of work and education is a process that is set to become an integral part of how we go about developing education.
“Employment”: a better guidance contributes to broader economic and social well-being by easing the functioning of labour markets.
Making qualifications transparent and easily readable, even across international frontiers, is a high priority for the ETF.
Teachers are a critical factor in education reforms. The ETF takes therefore the role of schools and teachers seriously throughout its work.
Focusing on key competences is one of the surest ways of keeping education and training relevant in a fast-changing environment.
Governance modes and models have a high correlation with the overall performance of education and training policies, influencing their strategic formulation and implementation.
