Video published on European Vocational Skills Week

The EC – Audiovisual Service just published a video with impressions of the first European Vocational Skills Week, which took place on December 5-9, 2016. There were events in Brussels and hundreds of registered activities in Member States, EFTA and EU candidate countries at national, regional and local levels. Europe heavily invests in its Skills development strategy. As you will see I found it remarkable and encouraging that Vocational Education and Training researchers were invited and part or the programme. I hope researchers will be given the opportunity to extend their work into EU vocational educational policy making circles, and that they will provide policy makers research intelligence which is useful and effective. Check the video at: http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/video/player.cfm?ref=I133334&videolang=EN&devurl=http://ec.europa.eu/avservices/video/player/config.cfm

Booklet ‘Competence for Life’ online

Dear website visitor, I noticed that my Farewell Speech Booklet ‘Competence for Life. A Review of Developments and Perspective for the Future’ (2016) was not yet available online, which is a bit strange, as I saw it done in October last year on the edit page. Nevertheless, it was invisible online when I was watching the site today. Therefore I uploaded it again. Download here: Farewell Address Booklet
