Europe is making interesting strides in the area of Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET). With a growing awareness throughout the European Union and surrounding countries of the importance of TVET, governments and educational institutions are making a concerted effort to upgrade the quality of and opportunities in TVET.

From VET toolkits to tackle early school-leaving to events like the European Vocational Skills Week, Europe is taking TVET seriously. One of the key pushes in coming years will be the concept of Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs), and IVETA Europe is involved in the creation and dissemination of such a framework together with other partners.
