The fourth edition of European Vocational Skills Week will be taking place 14-18 October 2019 in Helsinki, Finland, and it will be bigger and better than ever. Watch Marianne Thyssen’s announcement of the Week.

Everyone with an interest in vocational education and training can get involved in European Vocational Skills Week 2019. There are many ways to take part, including:

Register your event or activity

You can register your own event or activity. By registering your event or activity you will be helping to raise the awareness and attractiveness of vocational education and training. Your event or activity will also be featured on the event map and will therefore gain more interest. The map is a useful tool to help find an event or activity in your area.

Share your story

Getting involved with the campaign can be as simple as sharing your story. You can share details of how a traineeship has unlocked your professional potential or, if you’re an employer, you can share all about how you have upskilled your workforce through vocational education and training. Fill in the short form on our Share your story page and upload an image or video in order to be featured on the website!
