Challenges and opportunities for VET in the next decade

The vocational education and training (VET) system has been uniquely impacted by the global COVID-19 crisis. What does all this mean for the VET sector?  Which are the new trends for the next few years?

Cedefop and the ETF (European Training Foundation) have published in 2020 a discussion paper about the importance of being vocational in light of the changing world of work with the emphasis of VET policy. 

Cedefop is the EU’s reference centre for vocational education and training (VET), skills and qualifications. The agency is helping the European Commission, EU Member States and the social partners to develop the right European VET policies. The second organisation which participated in the design of this discussion paper is ETF. Established in 1994 in Turin, the ETF supports the EU as a global actor in the field of human capital development, including VET.

The paper aims to inform the next steps in vocational education and training (VET) policy-making at the EU level. It puts forward key challenges and opportunities for VET which have emerged from the intelligence, research and evidence collected over the years by the two agencies, each within its own remit and geographic scope.
