The European Training Foundation (ETF, website) is an agency of the European Union. Established in 1990, operational since 1994, the European Training Foundation is located in Turin, Italy.
The ETF helps improve vocational training systems in non-EU countries, mostly in neighbouring regions such as the countries preparing for EU accession, North Africa, the Middle East, the Balkans and the former Soviet Union. The ETF offers these countries insight, know-how and experience in training people for new jobs and in developing lifelong learning programmes. It cooperates closely with its sister agency, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop), which has a mandate on vocational training within the EU member states.
