Work programme of the Bologna Follow-Up Group 2007-2009
WG Employability meeting 2
In its second meeting, the group worked on the short country surveys, the report to ministers in 2009, the Stocktaking Working Group template, the seminar in Luxembourg.
In its second meeting, the group examined the main challenges identified in the short country surveys and recommendations arising.
The members discussed the structure of the group's report to ministers for the 2009 Bologna conference and agreed that the first draft of the report was to be considered in the group’s third meeting.
The group revised a question for stocktaking proposed by the working group on stocktaking, and suggest two additional questions. These suggestions were fed back to the working group on stocktaking.
The group discussed the programme for the seminar on employability to take place in Luxembourg and identified the following objectives: to improve communication between higher education institutions and employers; to build up mutual trust; to raise awareness among employers (but also higher education institutions and students) that bachelor graduates are employable.
