EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Education and training is not up to the job, say quarter of Europeans in survey

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Education and training is not up to the job, say quarter of Europeans in survey | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

A new Eurobarometer survey on the 'European Area of Skills and Qualifications' (Special Eurobarometer 417) shows also that around a quarter (23%) of EU citizens feel that their education or training has not provided them with the skills to find a job in line with their qualifications. While over half of the respondents (56%) think their qualifications would be recognised in other Member States, 6% tried to work or study in another Member State but were unable to do so, either because their qualifications were not recognised by their prospective employer or education institution, or because the respondents lacked information about recognition of their qualifications abroad.

 

The survey's findings are echoed by the results of a separate Commission online consultation, 'Towards a European Area for Skills and Qualifications', aimed at education and training specialists. It collated views on the obstacles faced by people in having their skills and qualifications recognised across Europe and found that there is strong support for action to simplify European tools for recognition of skills and qualifications, to make them more coherent and easier to use, and to ensure a stronger focus on the needs of pupils, students, workers and employers. Respondents also call for more emphasis in education and training on what is learnt rather than the number of hours of instruction.

 

"Our objective is simple: everyone in Europe should be able to have their skills and qualifications understood and recognised, within and across national borders, by employers and educational institutions. They need to be recognised in a fair, comparable and transparent way, so that people's skills and qualifications improve their employability or open the way for further learning," said Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
BANGLADESH - As USAID’s annual letter this year notes, in development it is no longer enough to teach a farmer to grow a new crop—or in this case, to fish. Our work isn’t done until we help a farmer learn to run a successful business too. This is precisely what is happening in Bangladesh, writes Dylan Butler, Information Officer, USAID Office of Food for Peace.

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre - Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre - Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The industry’s commitment to supporting scientific research to underpin growth and development is set to move ahead with the formal launch of the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) in June 2014.

 

Five years of funding for the SAIC have now been secured from the Scottish Funding Council, in partnership with Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise and the aquaculture industry. The SAIC will bring thirteen Scottish Higher Education Institutions together with a large number of aquaculture businesses to support problem solving research specifically designed to deliver economic development.

 

The Centre will also focus on knowledge exchange and training.  All of the SAIC’s activities will promote collaboration between Scottish aquaculture businesses and the Scottish academic and research community.

The AQUAGAMETE COST Action (aquagamete.webs.upv.es/web) is pleased to announce the 2nd AQUAGAMETETraining School.
The2nd AQUAGAMETE Training School is aimed towards young researchers (PhD students, young post-docs and MSc students) as well as representatives from industry.

 

The course will be focused on Molecular basis of fish gamete quality integrating different aspects and covering topics such as:

- Transcriptomic analysis of gamete quality, including practical microarray analysis of gamete quality
- Gamete quality assessment including practical cytometry analysis and embryonic outcome


- Scientific conferences on genomics & toxicogenomics, epigenetics, overview of gamete quality issues in fish and shellfish

The 2nd AQUAGAMETE Training School will highlight the most recent developments in each topic, promoting a strong interaction between experienced trainers working on different aspects of Molecular basis of fish gamete quality and trainees.

 

The course will take place between 23rd – 27th June 2014 at the INRA Fish Physiology and Genomics laboratory (Rennes, France, http://www6.rennes.inra.fr/lpgp_eng/ ;) facilities and counts with the collaboration of IFREMER and University of Lorraine.

 

The number of participants will be restricted to 16 persons (priority will be given to students and early stage researchers with no experience in Genomics and with a professional project related to gamete quality). Financial support from the AQUAGAMETE COST Action (for travelling, meals, and accommodation, up to 800 euros) will be available for trainees.

While scholarships make things easier financially for students, they also importantly provide a catalyst to get people into tertiary training and an incentive for them to stay in the region," he said.
