About VETFest project

The VET sector faces various challenges in its course to progression: limited teamwork and exchange of good practices between VET institutions, low social recognition of VET graduation when compared with the regular school learning paths, lack of internationalization of VET institutions, trainers and trainees, difficulties of the VET institutions in implementing quality monitoring mechanisms like EQAVET, outdating knowledge of VET trainers, etc.
 
VETFest is a Project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, aiming to provide solutions to the challenges faced by VET. It brings together partners with profiles as diverse as local VET networks, networked and not-networked VET providers with different profiles, a national association of start-ups and an institution focused on networking enterprises.
 
The main mechanism for the exchange of good practices within the network will be the “12VETFest Plan”, a set of 12 VET good practices that schools should implement during the school year. These will contribute not only to the improvement of VET quality but also to increase its impact on learners and external stakeholders.
