Our services and tools provide ways of solving problems faced in applying evidence–based VET and labour market programming, operationalising private sector involvement in VET and labour market activities, and enhancing the inclusion of vulnerable groups in VET and formal and informal labour market activities.
We want to:
- provide the best knowledge and expertise available (advice, training, twinning and tool development)
- improve access and connect national stakeholders, VET practitioners and experts to information, knowledge, strategic options and data to inform policy and practice (web-based platform & regional seminars)
We believe that partnering will allow us to:
- share ideas and resources towards a common goal
- learn by seeing things differently, through others’ eyes
- deliver mutual support
- reach a wider audience
- avoid duplication of resources
