In line with the EU-Israel political agenda, the focus of the ETF in 2020 is to support country requests from Israel reinforcing links with the EU through participation to EU programmes and expert communities via EU-funded instruments.
This will include advice on the setting-up of the Israeli national qualification framework within the EU funded Twinning project and inclusion of Israel in the ETF Global inventory of National Qualification Frameworks. In addition, the ETF will support the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Committee in the formulation and design of two new requests to TAIEX.
Priorities for TVET reforms and international cooperation in education and training, for example setting up centres and platforms of vocational excellence and reinforcing qualifications and involvement of the private sector will be key issues.
Country Strategy Paper 2020 will be shortly available.
