European Vocational Skills Week 2018
05/11/2018 @ 8:00 - 09/11/2018 @ 17:00
The 3rd European Vocational Skills Week will be organised in Vienna, Austria, from 5 to 9 November 2018. This was announced by Commissioner Thyssen at the closing Ceremony of the 2017 Week on 24 November 2017.
In addition to the events to be organised by the European Commission and the Austrian presidency, national, regional and local events will take place associated with the Week.
Based on the growing level of interest from all stakeholders in 2016 and 2017, we hope that the EVSW 2018 will reach out to an even higher number of learners (young and adults), parents, big enterprises, SMEs, chambers, VET centres, schools, guidance services, social partners and other stakeholders.
In 2015, EVTA promoted the organisation of a week-event to promote VET at European level. From 2016 on, the European Commission organises every year the European VET Skills Week “Discover your talent” to showcase VET Excellence and Quality VET as a “smart” choice, for learners and companies. The event foresees activities at EU level but also national/local level (open doors, workshops, etc.). People can participate to the main event only through personal invitation, but everyone can get involved by registering one of many additional events and activities taking place at national, regional, and local levels across Europe and beyond from 1 September 2018 through to the end of the year.
Stay tuned for regular news, updates, announcements and start of registration for local, regional and national events and activities. You can also join in on all the action on twitter #DiscoverYourTalent or #EUVocationalSkills.
You can follow the discussions online using the hashtag #DiscoverYourTalent
