6 Relevance Activities were relevant in view of: Specific objectives of the projectWP 1-4 contributed to developing FLLLEX Radar (WP5), self-assessment of individual institutions (WP6), review(WP 7) and dissemination (present conference)One of four strategic objectives of ET 2020“Making a European area of Lifelong Learning a reality”Objectives of the‘Agenda for new skills and jobs’ initiative (CEU, 2010)“Progress has to be made to improve the identification of training needs, increase the labour market relevance of education and training, facilitate individuals’ access to Lifelong Learning opportunities and guidance, and ensure smooth transitions between the worlds of education, training and employment. Achieving this calls for closer collaboration and partnerships between public services, education and training providers and employers at national, regional and local level. The transition towards learning outcome-based qualification systems and greater validation of skills and competences acquired in non-formal and informal contexts are also of great importance in enhancing employability.” (CEU 2011)Any further information?
