Country Project Georgia
The overall objectives of ETF
activities in Georgia are to support the European
Commission to plan and deploy assistance in the area of human resources
development (education and training in a lifelong learning perspective,
migration and skills, skills for small business development) and to support the
improvement of national capacities relevant for the above indicated policy
In 2012 to address the above objectives in Georgia, ETF will continue to combine activities belonging to regional / multi-country projects, with activities of a bilateral nature.
The activities of a bilateral dimension include the following components: (i) Support to European Commission and EU Delegation for programming, reviews of progress; (ii) Policy review under the Torino process; (iii) Capacity building of national VET institutions and providers to improve links of VET programmes with the Labour market, through on-the-job review of occupational standards and curricula.
The regional / multi-country activities will be articulated around the following components: (i) Mobility Partnership, incl. Migration and Skills survey; (ii) SME policy assessment (skills dimension); (iii) Continuing Vocational Training (CVT) in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) - peer learning; (iv) VET and sustainable development with focus on new skills.
ETF will pursue its well-rooted cooperation with EU Delegation to Georgia, through provision of advisory and analytical inputs to current programmes and new initiatives, and through active participation in donors’ coordination meetings led by the EU Delegation. ETF will continue to provide customised responses, within ETF thematic remit in Georgia, to European Commission services, and inputs to ENP progress report.
In 2012 ETF will take into consideration the conclusions and recommendations of the external evaluation of its activities in Georgia, (DG EAC, 2011), in particular those geared towards improving relevance for practitioners as well as for policy makers and providing more agile response to country needs as appropriate.
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.
