Get ready for European Vocational Skills Week 2017
The European Commission has announced that this year's European Vocational Skills Week will be held on 20-24 November.
The Commission has decided to organise the pan-European event again after the great success of 2016 VET Week.
Building on last year’s theme ‘Discover your talent’, this year the Commission wants to draw attention to mobility of VET learners, addressing skills mismatches, and boosting partnerships between businesses and VET providers.
Message by Commissioner Marianne Thyssen on the 2017 Vocational Skills Week
The Commission is hoping to see many national, regional and local events and activities taking place across Europe organised by stakeholders, not only during the week, but through the year.
Between 20-24 November the Commission is planning several meetings including an exhibition where Erasmus+ will be represented as part of its 30th anniversary.
European Vocational Skills Week 2016 was a great success with over 700,000 participants and 900 activities across Europe. Take a look at EPALE’s social media covering of the event last year.
