The European Training Foundation (ETF) has expressed its full solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people and condemn in the strongest possible terms Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified military aggression.
The ETF says it has been working with Ukraine for many years as one of its priority countries. “We have been supporting our Ukrainian partners in reforming their education and training system, focusing on topics such as qualifications, the future of skills in key economic sectors, and governance arrangements to modernise the system and bring it closer to the EU,” says a press release by the ETF. “We have invested in teacher training, career guidance, vocational excellence as well as green, digital and entrepreneurial key competences. We have supported the modernisation of labour market information systems through the make-it-match network and big data analysis of the labour market.”
The ETF says it will continue its work where circumstances allow. In the future, the ETF will step up its cooperation with its Ukrainian counterparts in close cooperation with the European Union: “We will do everything possible to further support Ukraine in its efforts as regards education and training and labour market expertise.”
