Progress Towards the Development of a Life Long Learning Strategy for Cyprus (3/2006)-EN

State of development until September 2006

 

The elaboration of a comprehensive Life Long Learning (LLL) Strategy for Cyprus by December 2006 is one of the prominent measures contained in the National Lisbon Program for Cyprus. The Planning Bureau of the Republic of Cyprus has been assigned the responsibility to coordinate the elaboration of the strategy. The LLL Strategy is foreseen to have a 7-year time span, covering the planning period 2007-2013, in order to coincide with the time span of other important national planning documents.

For the purposes of the elaboration of the strategy a Coordination Committee has been set up which has already appointed a drafting team comprising representatives from the Planning Bureau, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance, the Cyprus Productivity Centre and the Human Resource Development Authority of Cyprus. The drafting team has prepared an overview-structure of the strategy in mid-July 2006, whereas the first draft report of the strategy is expected by the end of September 2006.

Finally, a proposal to the Council of Ministers for establishing a National Lifelong Learning Committee is currently being promoted.

 The attainment of the overarching strategic objective of providing access to LLL for all would entail promoting pertinent actions and measures as follows

  • Promoting access of all to education.

  • Promoting entry/ re-entry to the labour market.

  • Promoting LLL for the employed and to this end providing appropriate support to enterprises, with particular emphasis to SMEs.

  • Promoting LLL in the Public Sector.

Involving key stakeholders in the development process

Cyprus has a long-standing tradition of involving key stakeholders in the formulation process of National Strategies. For the formulation of the LLL Strategy for Cyprus it is envisaged to engage in the development process the Social Partners and other prominent stakeholders. The precise mechanisms of the consultation process will be decided in due course with the consultation process per sec foreseen to commence immediately after the completion of the first draft report of the strategy by the drafting team by the end of September 2006.
