Conclusions of the Council of the European Communities (meeting on 1 June 1992) on the assessment of new Community programmes concerning education and training: In view of the increasing size and importance of programmes in this area, the Council concludes that, without prejudice to the evaluation by the Commission of current programmes, and in the light of the principle of subsidiarity, all programmes concerning education and training should be assessed by means of criteria and procedures appropriate to their individual objectives. Such assessment should involve a report identifying the situation prior to implementation of a programme (initial report), a report on the first two years of the programme, proposing any appropriate adaptations (interim report) and a report after conclusion of the programme (final report). Terms of reference of the assessment should be stated clearly in the proposal for each programme, to make it possible not only to assess objectively the impact produced by programmes in relation to their specific objectives in all twelve Member States but also to establish clear links between their benefits and the resources allocated to them. The Commission is invited to take account of these conclusions in the preparation of new programmes.
