The mission of the Human Resource Development Authority (HRDA) is to create the necessary prerequisites for the planned and systematic training and development of Cyprus´ human resources, at all levels and in all sectors, for meeting the economy´s needs, within the overall national socio-economic policies.

Τhe HRDA was designated as the National Coordinator of the Cyprus ReferNet Consortium by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop). The aim of the ReferNet network is to meet the growing demand for information on policies and developments in the area of Vocational Education and Training in the European Union.

ReferNet provides a forum for exchanging information through a decentralised approach based on the contribution of National Consortia. These Consortia are composed of Vocational Education and Training stakeholders in the 27 EU member states as well as Norway and Iceland.

The Cyprus ReferNet Consortium comprises 17 other members, representing Ministries and Government departments (7 members), Employer and Trade Union organisations (6 members), Non-profit making organisations (2 members), and National agencies managing European Programmes (2 members).

As part of its contractual obligations as the National Coordinator of the Cyprus ReferNet Consortium the HRDA has designed and developed the “Cyprus ReferNet” website. The development of the website is fully aligned with the HRDA´s strategic objective to increase the organisation´s effectiveness by utilising Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a tool for disseminating information and data.

The “Cyprus ReferNet” website contains analytical information and data on the following:

  • Activities of the Cyprus ReferNet Consortium and Cedefop.
  • Publications of Cyprus and Cedefop.
  • Members of the Cyprus ReferNet Consortium.
  • Links.

It is envisaged that this publication, which in the form of a panorama presents the contents of the “Cyprus ReferNet” website, updated in December 2010, will constitute a comprehensive guide for those interested in accessing electronically available information and data.
