ECVET Experts Conference ‘Higher VET in Europe – Visions for the future’ – Save the date

30. October 2018 - 12:44

The conference is jointly organised by the National Agency Erasmus+ Education and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research and will take place on 22 November 2018 in Vienna.

The conference will focus on European trends in "Higher VET“. For the purposes of this conference, "Higher VET" refers to qualifications and programmes offered at EQF levels 5 to 8 which do not fall within the overarching qualifications framework of the European Higher Education Area (QF-EHEA) (i.e. qualifications offered under the Bologna system are not central to the conference theme).

Contributions to the conference will highlight approaches in selected European countries. Participants are invited to share their visions for the future of Higher VET as to e.g. motivation for developing VET qualifications at higher levels, development of a common brand, quality assurance, validation and credit systems, new job profiles, National Qualifications Frameworks ...

Karin Luomi-Messerer, 3s, is invited to give a key note on „Higher VET in Europe“ and to co-host a plenary discussion on "Higher VET – Visions for the future“.

The working language will be English. Registration will close at 16 November or after the maximum number of participants has been reached. More information (registration, draft programme) is available here.
