New Social Contexts and New Training Needs

Telecommunication and satellite technologies have made many training courses available. These courses make way for learning and acquiring new skills even outside traditional educational and training facilities; everyone can learn thorough the Internet and television media. Within the information society, the development of an open and extended educational system presents both possibility and risks.

Institutions in charge of education and training can not ignore today’s new setting. They can not remain indifferent to the issues it has raised up nor to the need to bring teaching and learning into this new context. They can not ignore that the most important fact today is the "innovationdevelopment-growth-occupation" dynamic that has come into difficulties and that determines the need for continuing education. Today, people need to be prepared to be able to constructively fit into a constantly evolving society. It is no longer enough to just brush-up on one’s own skills, but rather, one needs to take on new skills and to become qualified in new professions.
