To merge the latest Skillman’s initiatives in the EU agenda, the Skillman Counsellor Mr Viktor Miloshevski participated in the Cedefop Policy Forum: “What role for community lifelong learning centres? The potential of one-stop shops for preventing youth at risk from disconnecting”, hosted by the Romanian Presidency of the Council in its permanent representation to the EU in Brussels the 29th of May 2019
The event aimed to explore the potential of community lifelong learning centres as one-stop shops for preventing young people at risk and early leavers from education and training from disconnecting.
Approximately 80 stakeholders, including the skillman.eu network, participated from the European Commission, Parliament, agencies, business and sector associations, trade union and employee organisations, as well as national policy-makers, practitioners and social partners.
During the event, the Cedefop launched the new edition of its web platform VET toolkit for tackling early leaving assisting policymakers and VET providers in taking action towards a comprehensive approach to tackling early leaving from education and training. The CEDFOP representatives of the toolkit will be then at the SIF 2019 in Florence Italy, in October 11th 2019, to lead one of the eight thematic workshops that will be held to identify a shared European vision for the future on the prevention of the early school leaving.
