New data on literacy rates between general and vocational education

Cedefop - European Centre for the Development of Vocational TrainingLiteracy skills of adults aged 25-64 with general education tend to be higher than for those with vocational qualifications across all European countries covered by the OECD’s Survey of Adult Skills.
Similar results can be observed for numeracy skills.This is not surprising. Literacy and numeracy are given more emphasis in general education and the survey does not measure vocation-specific skills. However, the gap within different European counties varies considerably; for literacy skills it is relatively narrow in countries such as Estonia, Ireland and Sweden, but much wider in some European countries that separate vocational and general learning tracks at upper secondary level (such as Finland, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands). The latest findings from the OECD survey signal the importance of fostering information-processing skills, like literacy and numeracy, to increase the adaptability of VET graduates in the labour market.
The latest data can be found in to the OECD’s Education at a Glance 2014 to which Cedefop has contributed for the first time, at

ESPE : "mes stages d'observation m'ont grandement aidée"

http://www.vousnousils.fr/wp-content/themes/vousnousils_theme/images/logo-vousnousils.pngPar Maelenn Le Gorrec. Les jeunes ensei­gnants tout juste sor­tis d'ESPE ont effec­tué leur pre­mière ren­trée en septembre. Deux d'entre eux racontent leurs débuts dans la cour des grands. 
Ouvertes en sep­tembre 2013 en rem­pla­ce­ment des IUFM, les ESPE ont pour mis­sion de mieux for­mer les futurs ensei­gnants, en mus­clant notam­ment les périodes de stages en alter­nance tout au long du mas­ter 2. Cette der­nière année d'études se révèle cru­ciale : elle pro­fes­sion­na­lise l'étudiant avant sa pre­mière ren­trée. Et pour cette année sco­laire, année de tran­si­tion dans la for­ma­tion en ESPE, le pro­fes­seur res­tera enca­dré par un maître for­ma­teur (ce ne sera plus le cas pour l'année sco­laire 2014–2015, où l'étudiant futur ensei­gnant aura béné­fi­cié de deux années com­plètes de for­ma­tion en ESPE).
