Organising a European Vocational Skills Week event or activity is an excellent way to raise awareness about your work in the field of vocational education and training. This year’s edition will take place from 14-18 October in Helsinki, Finland.
The event brings together a wide range of stakeholders from across Europe to share their perspectives on Vocational Education and Training (VET) and its role in the future of work. As in previous years, the 2019 Week aims to promote VET as a way to help young and adult learners discover their talents as a smart choice that leads to high-quality jobs and increased employability. Quality education, effective promotion of apprenticeships and inclusive policies to accommodate the most vulnerable groups are also emphasised during the Week’s discussions. The event focuses on the future of VET: how it might evolve and what challenges it will face.
Over 1,800 national, regional and local events and activities were organised for the third edition of the European Vocational Skills Week 2018. Events and activities took place in 45 countries, including all the EU Member States and 17 non-EU countries, reaching more than 2.4 million people.
