‘Discover your Talent!’ European Vocational Skills Week

Mon, Nov 20th, 2017 - Fri, Nov 24th, 2017


Following on from last year’s successful campaign, this year will continue the theme of “Discover Your Talent”: inspiring people to galvanise their abilities through quality VET, at all stages of their lives, on-the-move, and equipped with labour market relevant skills that lead to fulfilling personal and professional lives. This year there’s the added message of quality and excellence in VET. As Commissioner Marianne Thyssen says:

“We want to draw attention to the mobility of VET learners and quality apprentices. We want to boost partnerships between businesses and VET providers. And we want to bring the spotlight on sectoral approaches to address skills mismatches and respond to rapidly changing skill needs, as a means to foster innovation, competitiveness and excellence. Both issues are central to Erasmus+. Europe is celebrating the 30th anniversary of this successful platform for European and international mobility and cooperation. During the Week in November itself several meetings are planned, including an exhibition where Erasmus+ will be represented. The European Commission will work with all its partners, including EU agencies Cedefop and the European Training Foundation, to make the Second European Vocational Skills Week even more successful than the first one. Please mark this week in your diary and start to think about initiatives in your area that could inspire more people to discover the opportunities offered through VET.”
