Europe’s response to globalisation is embodied in the Lisbon strategy, which promotes a society and an economy founded on knowledge and innovation.
This is reflected in the following statement from the European Council: “Providing high-quality education and investing more and more effectively in human capital and creativity throughout people’s lives are crucial conditions for Europe’s success in a globalised world”.
(European Council, March 2008)
The Bordeaux Communiqué prepared in connection with a European Commission meeting has identified four policy areas that are the backbone of the follow-up on the Copenhagen Process.
One of these is the objective to heighten the quality and attractiveness of VET; another is to improve links between VET and the labour market.
The TrainerGuide project will contribute to achieving these goals.
