ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Partnerships to develop the VET system of the future

Vocational Education and Training (VET) needs to be flexible to adapt to an ever-changing job market. It is essential that VET qualifications and modes of delivery continue to be shaped by VET providers, employers, learners, unions and governments working together. A successful European VET system for the future in Europe requires education policy to be benchmarked and aligned at European, national, regional and local provider level. Cooperation and partnership between all VET stakeholders can provide the debate, challenge and consensus to deliver the skills that Europe requires in a 21st century Economy.

Join the conference, share your views and return home enriched with new ideas to put into practice. After the conference, you can continue to access the EUproVET network, giving you professional development opportunities and supporting the future of vocational education and training in Europe.

Please see our conference programme!

Register through our website (http://euprovet.scng.si/) as of August 20th. Conference fee only 35 euro thanks to our hosts in Slovenia.

The conference venue is at the School Center of Nova Gorica. Right in the middle of VET practice!
