This first European Vocational skills week will take place from 5 to 9 December 2016 in Brussels, in parallel with activities in Member States and other participating countries at national, regional and local levels, where these can be organised.
This event aims at improving the attractiveness and image of vocational education and training by showing that vocational education and training (VET) can lead to:
- quality employment,
- an entrepreneurial mindset,
- attractive and challenging careers,
- opportunities for up-skilling and re-skilling.
All stakeholders will be invited: learners, parents, companies, business organisations, education and training providers, adult learning organisations, researchers, career counsellors, Member States and other participating countries, social partners, and society at large.
