Most European Training Foundation (ETF) partner countries now have National Qualification Frameworks in place and are modernising their qualification systems. At the conference on 6 and 7 November, and through our new toolkit, we want to see how countries’ reforms of qualifications and systems are affecting learning and teaching, career guidance and assessment. We want to look at the benefits of policies and practices for people, and how these can be maximised.
We are guided by these core questions: how do people know about skills and qualifications? What types of skills and qualifications do they need? And how do people acquire them?
And we go further – how do countries need to change curricula, teaching and learning and guidance, so that people can benefit more from skills and qualifications? What new practices and tools need to be developed? In the conference we will communicate key findings from our new toolkit, have in-depth discussions in the workshops, share and explore cases of successful practice in the ETF partner countries and the European Union.
