European Vocational Skills Week

Where? Across Europe

When? October 23, 2023

In 2023 we will continue to shine a spotlight on how VET is key for people of all ages to upskill and reskill for their personal development and careers and how VET is key to Europe’s efforts to respond to economic, climate and social challenges. VET equips VET graduates with the skills they need to pursue the employment opportunities of today and of the future.

The 2023 European Vocational Skills Week will be embedded in the 2023 European Year of SkillsEN••• (EYS).  As in previous editions, we count on VET stakeholders’ cooperation in organizing initiatives and events. Therefore, we warmly encourage you to contribute with your planned events to  the website of the EYSEN••• by uploading information on your initiatives through this survey.  Events can be branded for both the EYS and the EVSW.

During the week of 23 October 2023, European level events will be organised, including with the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The European Vocational Skills Week (EVSW) is a European Commission initiative launched in 2016 to bring all stakeholders together to showcase best practices in Vocational Education and Training (VET) and to inspire others: #DiscoverYourTalent  #EuropeanVocationalSkills
