Summary: Cedefop and the European Commission (DG EAC) are organising a conference to present the findings of Cedefop’s new vocational education and training (VET) report. This report reviews developments in the deliverables set for 2014 and progress with the long-term objectives for VET agreed by Ministers, social partners, associated and candidate countries in the Bruges Communiqué. It also includes information by ETF on progress that candidate countries have made in these areas. During the event, debates with stakeholders on progress, obstacles, bottlenecks and positive experiences will help identify lessons that can be learnt from the current sets of priorities and short-term deliverables. These lessons should feed into the reflections of Director Generals and the EU-level Advisory Committee for Vocational Training on how to strengthen European cooperation on VET (within the framework of the so-called Copenhagen process and the Bruges Communiqué). To help foster policy learning, the conference will feature small group discussions on areas where progress has been more limited. The conference is addressed to high-level European and national policy makers for VET and VET-related fields, social partners, Cedefop’s reference network for VET (ReferNet), experts/researchers as well representatives of training providers and learners. Cedefop will cover the expenses for speakers, moderators and rapporteurs only. Information  on the conference as well as registration form are published on Cedefop’s website. A detailed agenda will follow soon. Please note that registration is possible until the 8 September 2014. For more information, please contact Cedefop at
