The sixth European Vocational Skills Week (EVSW) will take place on 16-20 May 2022, with an event organised by the European Commission on 18-19 May 2022.

We are delighted to be reaching out to you again to encourage more and more people to Discover their Talent, and to inform you about the annual VET flagship event. We are looking forward to spreading the word and increasing awareness about the exciting world of European Vocational Education and Training. This is especially important in these demanding times that require great flexibility in what we do, ensuring no one is left behind in this fast-changing world.

The specific theme for European Vocational Skills Week 2022 is VET and the Green Transition - in line with the EU’s vision of becoming climate neutral by 2050, as outlined in the European Green Deal.

The Week will put skills at the heart of the green transition. Food for Thought: What new skills will we need to thrive in an environment that protects earth’s valuable resources? What role can VET play to ensure a sustainable transition for all?
