Cooperation with the European Vocational Skills Week
The European Commission is organising a Second European Vocational Skills Week, to take place on 22 to 24 November 2017. Building on the success of the first Week in 2016, the Commission will continue to encourage us all to “Discover Your Talent” by focusing on excellent VET for quality careers. 2017 will see a particular focus on mobility, the importance of skills in sectors, and VET-business partnerships, through meetings in Brussels and national opening events in Member States. The Commission is looking for many events and activities across Europe from September to December 2017 to be associated with the Week, and placed on a central electronic map. In addition, a focused communications campaign will highlight all that’s going on to promote the central message. Join the European Commission in 2017 and “Discover Your Talent“!
