Launch of the EU survey ‘Vocational Education and Training 2035’

The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) is currently working on a project focusing on the ‘Changing Nature and Role of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Europe‘. The research will support the European Commission and the EU Member States in setting objectives for post-2020 European cooperation in the area of vocational education and training. The project is coordinated by 3s Unternehmensberatung and consortium partners include Danish Technological Institute (DTI, DNK), University of Warwick (IER, UK), Tallinn University (IISS, EST), Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB, IT), and the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB, DE) as key subcontractor.

A short online survey has been developed within the project. It focuses on major trends in VET that existed to different degrees across European countries between 1995 and 2015. The principal objective of the survey is to validate preliminary project findings as well as to set some parameters in the subsequent development of scenarios for VET in 2035. It is aimed at experts from various institutional backgrounds in the area of vocational education and training (and related fields such as labour market and social policy).

The survey can be accessed here: it is anonymous and will take between 15 and 20 minutes. 

Survey results will become available in the European Vocational Skills Week in November 2018.
