The European Commission has published a proposal for a Council Regulation amending the Regulation establishing the European Training Foundation, with a view to extending its activities to the Mediterranean partner countries.

The European Training Foundation was established in 1990 with the aim of contributing to the development of vocational training systems in the Central and Eastern European countries, eligible for assistance under the PHARE programme. Subsequently its activities were extended to encompass the New Independent States of the former Soviet Union and Mongolia, those eligible for support under the TACIS programme. The present proposal relates to extending the activities of the Foundation to the Mediterranean partner countries, eligible for assistance under the MEDA programme.

The ETF works in the training field, following general guidelines from the Commission, covering initial and continuing vocational training, as well as retraining for young people and adults, including in particular management training.

In addition to providing for the participation of the Mediterranean countries, the proposed Regulation also contains provisions relating to the management procedures of the Foundation, and proposes to strengthen coordination with other Community policies and activities.
