European Vocational Skills Week provided a showcase of the benefits of vocational education and training (VET). Over five days, we heard from learners, teachers, high-level politicians, training providers and many other VET stakeholders from around Europe and beyond, we launched the Pact for Skills and we presented the Awards for Excellence in VET. We hope you found something in the programme to inspire you. Below you will find summary reports of each of the sessions.
