20. December 2018 - 16:23

Over 400 participants discussed the future of vocational education and training (VET) at the third European Vocational Skills Week 2018 organised jointly by Cedefop (European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) and the European Commission.


Jörg Markowitsch (3s) and Jens Bjornavold (Cedefop) presented main findings of the Cedefop project 'The Changing nature and role of VET in Europe'. The project involved a big research consortium (with 3s as a lead partner) and experts from all 30 countries (e.g. EU28+ Iceland and Norway).

Jens Bjornavold stressed the positive narrative that VET is expanding, diversifying and its higher education element is increasing. Jörg Markowitsch noted that there are different visions and scenarios in the minds of people for VET in 2035.
