Continuing training

Continuing vocational education and training and adult learning allows people to develop skills that promote their employability, mobility and productivity, contributing to societal competitiveness and growth.

The ETF promotes the continuity of lifelong learning and work-based learning throughout different levels of vocational education provision. While vocational education and training policy tends to emphasise the preparation of young people, there is a growing awareness to improve access to adult skills development.

The ETF facilitates the sharing of EU best practice and peer learning exchanges among policymakers, and promotes quality assurance mechanisms in line with the European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET).
