One of the most important initiatives for the VET sector in the next years will be the Erasmus+ Call from the EU for Proposals of Centres of Vocational Excellence to support the development of CoVEs and to strengthen partnerships between CoVEs across EU and beyond.
Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs) bring together a wide range of local partners, such as providers of vocational education and training, employers, research centres, development agencies, and employment services (among others), to develop “skills ecosystems” that contribute to regional, economic and social development, innovation, and smart specialisation strategies.
The Joint CoVEs Initiative of the VET4EU2 Platform and the European Training Foundation with its Network for Excellence aims to create successful partnerships and connections between the members of both networks and to enable initiatives for vocational excellence. Both platforms aim to provide high quality vocational skills and want to join forces to act as knowledge and innovation hubs for all stakeholders of both, European and International levels working with all kinds of centres through an international collaborative platform.
This event brings together the members of the networks to explain the idea of CoVEs, discuss its needs and targets creating synergies among them to benefit from each other.
