Policies for human capital development: Turkey – An ETF Torino Process Assessment
The European Training Foundation (ETF) assessment process provides an external, forward-looking analysis of countries’ human capital development issues and VET policy responses from a lifelong learning perspective. It identifies challenges related to education and training policy and practice that hinder the development and use of human capital, taking stock of them and making recommendations for possible solutions.
Such assessments are a key deliverable of the Torino Process, an initiative launched by the ETF in 2010 and aimed at providing a periodic review of vocational education and training (VET) systems in the wider context of human capital development and inclusive economic growth. In providing a high-quality evaluation of VET policy from a lifelong learning perspective, the assessment process builds on four key principles: ownership, participation, and holistic and evidence-based analysis.
