The European Vocational Skills Week is an annual initiative from the European Commission to raise the awareness and attractiveness of vocational education and training (VET). The Week aims to make VET more attractive through a combination of events taking place all over Europe - locally, regionally and nationally. It seeks to show the immense opportunities that VET can provide for young people, adults, and companies.
The motto of the initiative is “Discover your talent!” It seeks to show that every single person is talented and that VET can provide people with the necessary practical skills, knowledge and competences to succeed in the labour market and in society at large.
The Week takes place from 20 to 24 November 2017 in the 28 Member States, EEA and EU candidate countries. Activities organised from September to December 2017 can be part of this Week.
