The EC Communication on “Rethinking Education: Investing in Skills for Better socio-economic outcomes” highlights significant discrepancies between countries across Europe in their development of VET and PHE.
PROCSEE will set up systematic structures for policy-recommendations and best-practice sharing, focusing on four specific areas:
- Alignment of VET with regional/local economic development strategies
- Promotion of VET, especially to respond to identified skill shortages
- Organising and monitoring student placements in the world of work
- Personal Learning Environments and Further Education
By bringing together leading actors in the field from across Europe, educational institutions and companies from SEE and European and Regional policy actors, the project will provide specific policy inputs on how to address these priorities in each participating country as well as across the region.
