The 2020 European Vocational Skills Week registration is open!

The European Commission has announced that the next European Vocational Skills Week will be held from 9 to 13 November 2020 in hybrid format – partly in person in Berlin and partly online. In a dedicated video, EU Commissioner Schmit explains how vocational education and training has got an increasingly important important role nowadays.

As the European Commission clarifies, in agreement with the hosting German Presidency the attendance in Berlin will be limited to some 200 people, to respect the requirements of the COVID-19 period. Nevertheless, all interested parties shouldn't be put off by the apparent smaller number of activities this year.

"With the formal launch of the communications campaign and the upgraded online format", the EC explains "we expect to reach more people than ever before". In order to boost participation, all individuals and organisations interested in taking part in the Week, can register events they are organising under the European Vocational Skills Week 2020.


The European Vocational Skills Week is an annual event focusing on vocational education and training. The initiative was launched by the European Commission for the first time in 2016, with the purpose of strengthening awareness of the potential and benefits of quality vocational education and training, as well as on learner mobility. Today, the event has become an exchange platform for vocational education and training stakeholders from all around Europe and beyond.
