Opinion of the EESC on the economic crisis, education and the labour market
18 November 2011

The purpose of this opinion is not to examine the causes of the crisis, but rather to highlight the detrimental effects it has on the fabric of society, and also to suggest a number of strategies that need to be implemented in order to lessen its impact and cope with its effects. It will address the importance of education and training as key tools for combating the crisis, relations between education/training and the world of work, the integration of young people into the labour market, the needs and responsibility of businesses regarding the training of their employees and the promotion of decent, high-quality jobs.

Developing UNESCO Guidelines for the recognition, validation and accreditation (RVA) of non-formal and informal learning
18 November 2011

Making visible and valuing individuals’ real competences, in order to progress in lifelong learning, in employment and in personal development, have been the goal of the UIL programme on the recognition, validation and accreditation of non-formal and informal learning. The development of UNESCO Guidelines for the recognition of all learning outcomes were endorsed in the Belèm Framework for Action (Confintea VI, Brazil 2009). As part of this process, an Expert Group Meeting was held in October 2011 at UIL, with participants from Germany, Thailand, Jordan, Mexico and Mauritius and representatives from international and regional agencies: ADEA, Cedefop and the ETF. The Expert Group reviewed a synthesis report based on responses from 42 member states as well as UIL research findings. In the next few months UIL will revise the draft Guidelines and hold further consultations with member states in different regions.
