This case report - ATKM Project - forms part of a study conducted by the Danish Technological Institute for Eurofound. The purpose of the study is to provide empirical evidence about the state of the education and training sector in Europe within the overall context of lifelong learning, to identify and illustrate trends and practices that can function as a source of inspiration. The aim is to produce original scenarios for the sector in the European Union (EU27) in order to provide Eurofound and its stakeholders with a sound and pragmatic knowledge base to improve the understanding and anticipation of change in the sector up to 2020 in the EU.
This report presents the findings of a study commissioned by Eurofound and carried out by the Danish Technological Institute on anticipating the challenges facing educational and training services across Europe. The purpose of the study was to provide empirical evidence about how changes in the education and training sector in the 27 EU Member States (EU27) influence the present and future job prospects, skills and working conditions of those employed in the sector as teachers and trainers. Within the overall context of lifelong learning, the sector is undergoing profound changes and the study aims to identify trends that present the greatest challenges, and the most important opportunities, for teachers and trainers. It also seeks to illustrate practices that can serve as a source of inspiration for those working in the field.
