The world of work looks a little different every day. These changes—driven by technological innovation, demographics, climate change, and globalization—are unprecedented in their scale, speed, and depth. They are already profoundly reshaping the ways in which people work and live.
For its 100th anniversary, the ILO is inviting young people from all over the world for a Summer School and Global Debate on the Future of Work. An entire generation is ready to innovate for the work they deserve. Are you in?

The world keeps changing at a rapid rate. This is characterized by ever-faster innovation cycles, disruptive technologies, digitization and challenges posed by demographic and global environmental change. As economic, technological and social developments constantly evolve and diversify, so do the skill requirements in the workplace and society.
Worldwide, TVET systems and institutions are struggling to anticipate to these changing requirements and to initiate the change processes that are needed for countries to stay connected to global developments, for economies to become or stay competitive, and for societies to remain inclusive.
For such change processes to be successful and sustainable, they must be driven from the inside - by national or local leaders who have a thorough understanding of the respective national policies and context. The UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme therefore builds the capacity of such TVET professionals to become effective change agents in their institutions and countries.

Cedefop, in cooperation with the Lifelong learning Platform is organising this policy forum to explore the potential of community Lifelong learning centres as one-stop shops for preventing young people at risk and Early school leavers from disconnecting. The event will be hosted by the Romanian Presidency of the Council in its permanent representation to the EU in Brussels.
Brussels-based stakeholders from the permanent representations of Member States to the EU, the European Commission, the European Parliament, European agencies, European business and Sector associations, trade union and employee organisations, as well as national policy-makers, practitioners and social partners involved in designing and implementing integrated services to tackle early leaving from education and training.
Focus of the forum
The forum will focus on the potential of multidisciplinary teams in community Lifelong learning centres (CLLC) to play a key role in tackling ELET. The forum will be an opportunity to discuss Member State experiences in using integrated service delivery (one-stop shops, case management and multi-skilled teams) in different settings. Participants will consider the potential for establishing CLLCs in disadvantaged areas across Europe. These would offer access to a wider range of learning opportunities for people of all ages, maximising the support offered by multidisciplinary teams. Participants will also be invited to reflect on the post-2020 agenda in the field to ensure continued progress towards improving EU citizens’ qualifications and skills.
