Validation Seminar on Methodological Guides for Skills Anticipation and Matching, Prague 6 – 7 March 2014

Cedefop-ILO-ETF expert seminar coorganized by National Training Fund (NTF)
The purpose of the event was to present and validate the final drafts of 3 guides of the compendium of methodological guides which the ETF, Cedefop and the ILO have been developing for skills anticipation and matching (i.e. Guide on Tracer Studies, Guide on the use of labour market information (LMI) and Guide on Establishment Skills Surveys). 
The objective of the seminar was to ensure their validity and usefulness for target audiences and provide expert feedback and advice to the authors of the guides with a view to finalising them. 
Seminar structure and methods of working
The proposed format of the workshop was based on individual sessions dedicated to each guide starting with a short presentation or introduction, followed by a critical review of external experts and by a plenary discussion. The most appropriate comments and remarks was summarised at the end of the event and was implemented in the final drafts.
