5 Joint progress report of on the implementation of the 'Education & Training 2010' work programme (2008) « Delivering lifelong learning for knowledge, creativity and innovation » Lifelong learning strategies. Most countries have made progress in defining unified and overarching strategies. Within such frameworks, progress is evident in pre-primary education, qualification frameworks and the validation of non-formal and informal learning. However, innovative learning partnerships and sustainable funding for high quality, efficient and equitable education and training still elude many countries, the more so as the growth of investment appears to have slowed. Particular attention must also be given to lifelong guidance. Ensuring that reforms are effectively implemented is an important challenge to all

6 33 European countries participate in the Lisbon follow up 30 non-EU countries participate in higher education cooperation - Eastern- Europe, Central Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, Western Balkans. (Tempus, Erasmus Mondus) Bilateral cooperation agreements with: USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea. EU cooperation in the field of education

13 EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN THE EU IS IMPROVING SLOWLY BUT STEADILY. However  Only the benchmark on MST graduates is likely to be exceeded.  Low performance in reading literacy has increased by more than 10% between 2000 and 2006 and has reached 24.1 %. PARTICIPATION IN LIFELONG LEARNING IS BECOMING A REALITY IN IN SOME COUNTRIES WHICH HAVE DEVELOPED COMPREHENSIVE AND COHERENT LIFELONG LEARNING STRATEGIES. THERE ARE STILL IMPORTANT INEQUITIES IN EUROPEAN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. Main messages of the 2008 report

14 Inequity still a reality in educational systems in the EU  1 in 7 (6 million young people, 18-24 years old) have only achieved compulsory education or less.  Adults are 3 times more likely to participate in lifelong learning if they have completed at least upper secondary education.  1 in 7 of the 4 year-olds are not enrolled in education  Gender inequalities remain. Boys do less well at reading and have more special education needs. Girls do less well at mathematics and women are underrepresented among mathematics, science and technology students and graduates.
