Croissance, emploi et compétences : quand la formation crée la valeur

Université d’hiver de la formation professionnelle, organisé par le Centre inffo.

En janvier 2014, l’Université d’hiver de la formation professionnelle ouvre sa treizième édition au cœur de l’actualité de la réforme de la formation : elle offre une occasion exceptionnelle de débattre de son impact avec les acteurs majeurs de la formation et d’anticiper les changements à venir.

Face aux enjeux de notre environnement en France et dans le monde, la formation se révèle un atout capital pour accompagner la compétitivité des entreprises, le développement des personnes et l’attractivité des territoires.

Comprendre et apprécier la valeur de la formation comme élément constitutif du capital de chacun, de l’entreprise et du territoire, tel est le nouveau paradigme proposé par la centaine d’intervenants de l’UHFP. Le secteur professionnel de la formation tout entier montre ainsi sa capacité à favoriser les dynamiques individuelles et collectives nécessaires aux mutations en cours.
Information sur le programme complet, les modalités d’inscription, etc, sur le site de l'Université : http://www.centre-inffo.fr/uhfp/.

New Promotional Partnership Between StudyPortals and Open Education Europa

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSZZe22GTTQ20BJpVUZirGINg2eVVmwhjCWqUWqHsw5MRSfwe_zrhbol9kOpen Education Europa is pleased to announce a new partnership with Study Portals, an online platform that helps students to understand the options and opportunities available for international study. 

Open Education Europa and Study Portals share a commitment to providing easily accessible and comprehensive information to students in Europe, empowering them to improve and expand their own educational experience.
Students are more mobile than ever before, and international experience is a valuable asset. The problem is that it can be difficult to find and understand the many opportunities available from the array of institutions across Europe. Study Portals offer specialized platforms to search and compare courses at various levels (BachelorMaster, and PhD). Furthermore, students can find valuable information about scholarships and read about other students’ experiences and opinions of the institutions they have attended. 
One of the Study Portal components is the Distance Learning Portal, which is dedicated to the promotion of open and distance education programs.
