For any organisation wanting to organise a VET event or activity taking place in Europe between March and December 2020, that event or activity can be associated with European Vocational Skills Week 2020. All VET events and activities in Europe that take place between March and December 2020 can apply to be associated with European Vocational Skills Week 2020.
The ongoing health crisis means that European Vocational Skills Week 2020 will no longer be a hybrid event in Berlin and will instead be 100 % online. Partner events held across the EU may be held online or in person, according to local COVID-19 guidelines.
Organising an event or activity is an excellent way to raise awareness about your work in the field of VET. Approved events/activities are featured on this website, making it a great opportunity to promote your organisation, whether it is through a ‘closed’ event/activity or one that is open to anyone.
Before the event/activity
1. Prepare your event or activity
All activities or events that promote VET are welcome. If you cannot organise an in-person event because of your efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, why not organise digital events – a webinar, digital press campaign, online careers fair, Facebook Live, Instagram Live or other online gathering. You need to plan and implement each stage carefully. It does not matter if the event/activity is big or small, open only to a specific group, open to the public, or organised by a professional event organiser or students. The events/activities all belong to the VET family and can be part of European Vocational Skills Week.
2. Register your event
It takes no more than 10 minutes and allows you to promote your organisation and your event/activity at EU level.
3. Receive your confirmation (that your event has been approved) and the European Vocational Skills Week stamp
You can add the Official Partner of European Vocational Skills Week 2020 stamp to your promotional materials, web page and social media. There are also promotional resources available to co-brand your event with the Week.
4. See your event/activity added to the European Vocational Skills Week webpage
5. Keep up to date with the Week and network with other event/activity organisers
