Working together: education and business. ETF launches mapping study
Thematic Area: Education and business
“Capturing the current state of affairs and then putting it all together,” ETF Director Madlen Serban summarised the aim of the study which will zoom in on the interface between the worlds of work and education in all ETF partner countries, drawing up national, regional and overall analyses and looking at how European expertise can be used for the benefit of partner countries.
“We’re very grateful that the ETF has incorporated this into its Work Programme,” said Elena Pascual Jiménez of DG Education and Culture, assuring those present that the topic is a “big priority” for the Commission and that it would aim to incorporate results in its 2011 university-business forum.
The study results are expected to be made public in early 2011.

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.
