Between 2001 and 2002, eight working groups were set up to produce policy recommenda-

tions on one or more of the 13 set objectives. The working groups exchange information on

good practices and organise study visits and peer learning activities. Over the years the work-

ing groups have changed names and functions to become the so-called “clusters” that have

ended up including only member state officials or expert groups set up by the Commission.

Current peer learning themes/clusters and groups have been formed as follows:180

Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Access and Social Inclusion

Key Competences

Making best use of resources

Maths, Science and Technology (MST)

Modernisation of Higher Education

Recognition of Learning Outcomes

Teachers and Trainers

In addition, there is a working group on the Adult Learning Action Plan.

The Cluster on Access and Social Inclusion worked mainly on issues of early school-

leaving, education, and migration; it also looked at related issues, such as adult education

and literacy, early education, and childcare. The cluster issued a range of recommendations

promoting a multicultural approach through staff employment and training, addressing the

lack of multicultural curricula and learning materials, and calling for the participation of

minority groups in their development. The work of this cluster provided a fertile ground for

the Commission’s green paper Migration and Mobility.

The Knowledge System for Lifelong Learning (KSLLL)181

The Commission has recently released a new EU website on the outputs of ET 2010

under the heading: Knowledge System for Lifelong Learning (KSLLL) (http://www.

kslll.net/). The website builds mainly on the work of peer learning clusters and

includes information on outputs from peer learning clusters and other groups; sum-

maries, conclusions, and participants of peer learning activities, which have already

taken place; compendia of good practices developed by the peer learning clusters or

other groups; and country information developed as part of the ET 2010 process.



This new website is part of the Commission strategy to provide greater visibility to

outputs and findings from various activities under the ET 2010, particularly its mutual

learning component. This new tool is expected to be fully used and regularly updated

with information on work in progress under the new ET 2020 Work Programme.
