European Vocational Skills Week 2019


The European Vocational Skills Week 2019, organised by the European Commission, is taking place again this year with the official Week in Helsinki from 14 – 18 October. But, that’s not all! Hundreds of events and activities will also be taking place across Europe from May through to December as part of the Week.

The Week provides a unique opportunity for education and training providers, civil society organisations, public authorities, business organisations and the broader public to come together and celebrate Vocational Education and Training (VET) as a smart choice, leading to excellence in education, high-quality jobs and increased employability.


This year’s theme is ‘VET for ALL – Skills for Life’, so there will be a special focus on adult learning and inclusivity. As we begin registration this year, we are already seeing great examples coming through, from opening events to Employer’s Days, plus a whole range of seminars and workshops. It would be great to have you involved!

The Week is an excellent way for you to raise awareness about your work in the field of VET and to promote your event to a wider audience.

Register your events and activities here to be part of the Week!
