European Vocational Skills Week: 14-18 October 2019
01.10.2019 - An initiative from the European Commission to raise awareness about vocational education and training and increase its attractiveness
European Vocational Skills Week is an initiative from the European Commission to raise awareness about vocational education and training (VET) and increase its attractiveness.
The Week aims to make VET more of an appealing proposition, and help young people and adults reach their full potential.Events taking place all over Europe – locally, regionally and nationally – will showcase the immense opportunities offered by VET for young people, adults and companies.
The fourth edition of the Week takes place from 14 to 18 October 2019 in the EU Member States, the EEA and EU candidate countries. Events and activities organised at any time during 2019 can be associated with the Week – boosting your organisation’s recognition and visibility.
The motto of the initiative is ‘Discover your talent!’ It seeks to show that every single person is talented and that VET can provide people with the necessary practical skills, knowledge and competences to succeed in the labour market and in society at large.
This year’s theme is ‘VET for ALL – Skills for Life’ and the Week will be focusing on the inclusive and lifelong aspects of VET.
