Call for proposals: Joint qualifications in vocational education and training (VET)


The objectives of the call are to increase the employability of young people and to contribute to the development of a highly skilled, qualified and mobile workforce, as well as to support joint developments in VET in Europe and strengthen its quality, relevance and attractiveness.

Against the background of high youth unemployment, skills mismatch and shortages as well as the need for higher level skills at sectoral level, joint VET qualifications have the potential to address these challenges and ensure that VET response better to labour market needs.

The call is open until 31 January 2018 and is published in all official EU languages.
