Desarrollo de aptitudes para la reducción de la pobreza en los países en transición

Skills and skills development are again recognised by the international donor community to be important for poverty reduction. But it is not clear what this means for the systematic reforms of vocational education and training in the ETF partner countries.
There is an urgent need to relate the development aid debate on skills development to the practice of system VET reforms in the transition countries. They can benefit from both the experience with skills development projects in developing countries and from the experience with national competence-based education and training policies in developed countries. These issues need to be clarified in order to understand the role that the ETF can play.
