The EU Vocational Skills Week 2019 goes to Helsinki
The fourth edition of the European Vocational Skills Week, as announced by the Commissioner Ms.Marianne Thyssen, will take place from 14-18 October 2019 in Helsinki (Finland). Everyone with an interest in vocational education and training, both from the European Union and its neighbouring countries, can get involved. You can:
- Register your event or activity. Events or activities about vocational education can be registered to help raise the awareness and attractiveness of vocational training. Your event or activity will also be featured on the event map and will therefore gain more interest. Events from outside the European Union are warmly welcome, too!
- Share your story. Let's be inspirational about vocational education! You can share details of how a traineeship has unlocked your professional potential or, if you’re an employer, about how you have up-skilled your workforce through vocational education and training. Fill in the short form on the event's 'Share your story page' and upload an image or video in order to be featured on the website.
- The Awards for vocational education and training excellence. Committed people, organisations and outstanding projects: best practices in vocational training will be presented to the world, and open to public voting (keep an eye out for the announcement to get involved). Nominees from countries neighbouring the EU will also be presented, thanks to the European Training Foundation (ETF) Entrepreneurship Award, focusing on good practices in developing entrepreneurship as a key competence. The call was open to all schools, universities and training centres (public or private) providing vocational education and training in countries surrounding the EU.
- Social media. Be a part of the conversation on social media, by using the dedicated hashtags #DiscoverYourTalent and #EUVocationalSkills.
