This conference will launch the European Training Foundation (ETF) network for excellence (ENE). The conference will be executed in 2 parts: part 1 will take place in virtual format on 3 December 2020 and part 2 will take place in Turin (Italy) in March 2021.
ENE is an international network of centres of vocational excellence(CoVEs) in the EU neighbourhood.
During the conference participants will discuss the future needs of CoVEs and how these are linked to skills demands and smart specialisation strategies.
The core questions of the conference will be:
- How can CoVEs improve to fulfil their role as engines of development for learners, the vocational education and training (VET) system and society?
- How can ENE best support CoVEs and VET systems in the EU neighbourhood?
- How does ENE contribute to the EU support services to CoVEs?
- How can international stakeholders work together through ENE to support the development of CoVEs and the transmission of excellence to national VET systems?
