25th Annual EfVET International Conference PDF Print E-mail

 ©TVCB, Valencia. All rights reserved.

We are delighted to invite you to the 25th Annual Conference International EfVET Conference. This will take place in Valencia (Spain) from 26 to 29 October 2016.
On this our 25th Anniversary Conference let us celebrate the Quality of VET in action and explore how Quality can be further embedded in all aspects of our activities - both at strategic level and operational/delivery levels.  Quality takes many forms and should form the driver for improvements in VET.  Quality starts by putting the Learner first; at the heart of everything we do;.

Key note presentations will be complemented by interactive workshops / focus groups, on a variety of related and key priorities facing VET institutions. These will offer delegates the opportunity to share approaches and methodologies drawn from across Europe and sharing good practice models of engagement through case studies and good examples.
This year the workshops will take a slightly different format, more in the form of focus groups tackling specific aspects of each topic and identifying potential solutions to meet the challenges.
Please find attached the draft programme, conference theme and practical information
The conference registration, booking and roundtable forms are available through efvet-conference link.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Valencia.
