European Vocational Skills Week

On Location,
Virtual Live,

European Vocational Skills Week is an annual event where local, regional or national organisations showcase the very best of vocational education and training (VET). 

The European Vocational Skills Week initiative was created in 2016 by the European Commission following the publication of the 2016 Skills Agenda, and after the call from the EU Directors General of Vocational Training in the “Riga conclusions” on VET to present the visible achievements of European cooperation in VET (known as the Copenhagen process). The European Parliament has also asked the Commission to strengthen its work on raising awareness of the potential and benefits of quality VET, as well as on learner mobility.

Moving forward from the initial concept, the event has become a platform for VET stakeholders all around Europe and beyond to exchange ideas and good practice, while making VET known more widely.

The annual event usually takes place in October-December. More information about the 2021 edition will follow closer to the event date.
