The ETF Network for Excellence mirrors the European Union initiative on Centres of Vocational Excellence under the Erasmus+ programme. Centres of vocational excellence are a driving force for education and training system reform. They contribute to regional skills strategies, promoting employment and regional development by working closely with employers, and responding to learners with personalised learning pathways and the latest technology. As members of the ETF's ENE network vocational centres share ideas, practices and experience at both national and international levels.
One of the eight themes of the ENE network is the development of pedagogy and professional development for which the ETF has just recently launched the Community for Innovative Educators. The community’s goal is to empower its members to innovate through learning from each other.
