The Awards aim to:

  • recognise excellence;
  • provide visibility;
  • motivate the participants, whether individuals or organisations;
  • foster the building of networks and new career opportunities;
  • enable the winners to be recognised in their field of expertise;
  • reach out to citizens through online voting.

How are the awards organised?

A jury of independent members was established for each award. Each jury identified nominees from the pool of applications. After the jury finalised the pre-selection of the nominees (step 1 of the selection process), the nominees were put forward for online voting (step 2).

The 2022 VET Excellence Awards Categories

By recognising best practices in VET by committed people and organisations, as well as outstanding projects, the VET Excellence Awards inspire current and future VET stakeholders to emulate their example of excellence. This year the theme of the Week and of the Awards centres around the European Union's commitment to A European Green Deal and the road towards the Green Transition - ensuring everyone has the right skills for the transition.
