Cedefop has the pleasure to invite you to the forthcoming Agora Conference “Continuity, consolidation and change: Towards a European era of vocational education and training” to be held on 16-17 march 2009 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The Conference is organized in cooperation with the Czech Presidency of the EU and it will bring together policy makers, researchers, social partners and practitioners. Mr. Jan Figel, EU Commissioner for Education, Training, Culture and Youth, and the Education Ministers of the Czech Republic and Greece will participate in the event.

The objective of Agora is to discuss the progress made in implementing the European priorities for vocational education and training (VET) to which 31 ministers with responsibility for VET, the European Commission and the European social partners have committed themselves since 2002(Copenhagen process).At the centre of the debate will be Cedefop’s policy report reviewing the progress in the Copenhagen process.
The Agora will focus on three areas:
•    Implementing common European tools and principles to support lifelong learning;
•    Promoting excellence and innovation in VET;
•    Improving the link between VET and the labour market.

The conference will provide opportunity to consider future steps and perspectives for VET beyond 2010.
