Abstract

The article discusses the features of the common European framework for work-based learning (WBL) of the project Developing European Work Based Learning Approaches and Methods (DEWBLAM). It highlights the point that education and training have the main role in responding to the challenges faced in Europe including globalization, an ageing population and emerging new technologies. It states that the European Union initiatives have brought changes in the structure, purpose, methodology, conduct and delivery of higher education in response to globalization. WBL is stated to possibly help higher education institutions to establish sustainable partnerships with workplace organizations, create more appropriate qualifications and improve employability.
