Peer review. From consultations to initiatives. Activating the role of social partners in continuing training in Romania

In 2002 the European Training Foundation (ETF) launched a new peer review programme in the countries of South Eastern Europe that are preparing or already running EU funded CARDS2 projects in the field of VET. The programme is a follow-up to the thematic reviews of education policy carried out by the OECD during 2000 and 2001 and is funded from the ETF's own budget. In 2002 peer reviews were carried out in Albania, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, and Kosovo3, while peer reviews in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Romania and Turkey followed in 2003 and thereafter. The purpose of this peer review programme is to evaluate recent progress in VET policy development and to propose activities that could be undertaken to help to move the reform process forward. The ETF's peer reviews aim at both policy advice and capacity building in the region.
