The four European Associations EfVET, EVTA, EVBB and EUproVET have joined forces to strengthen VET in Europe. We are doing this by contributing to the EU policy laid down in the Bruges communiqué of 2010.
The Euprovet conference will be held only one month away from the start of the Olympic Games in London. During the conference we will look at what is necessary to achieve an Olympic level for VET in Europe. Contributions from the EU commission and from the associations that form Euprovet are already promised. The conference will focus expressly on making your insights shared and heard!
Next to policy issues concerning the Bruges declaration a specific theme will be Leadership in VET. We see the Leadership issue as a precondition for achieving the policy goals at the grassroot level in schools, colleges and apprenticeships.
We would like to invite you to share your insights with us to ensure the Olympic aspirations Citius, Altius, Fortius!” (Faster higher stronger” ) for the development of Vet in Europe as well.
