European Forum of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (EfVET)

EfVET – the European Forum of Technical and Vocational Education and Training – was founded in 1991 following the recognition that Vocational Education and Training Institutions did not have a voice in Europe. VET institutions were, at the time, facing challenges to gain recognition as a key educational pathway for many young people. The Academic/Vocational divide was considerable and vulnerable young people and even adults were significantly disengaged as a result. It was time to build a network of practitioner VET institutions to secure a voice across Europe in both the policy arena and also to share and establish good practises in the delivery of VET learning.

EfVET is based in Brussels and represents over 1500 VET Institutions in Europe reaching out to approximately 600 000 learners and 50 000 VET professionals, with links to the global state of Technical and Vocational Education and Training.

EfVET sits on a number of key working groups and coordinating bodies across the European Commission´s policy domain and also advises CEDEFOP working groups- The European Alliance for Apprenticeships and PACT for youth having also participated in the 3 working groups set up under the Framework of CEDEFOP Community of Learning Providers.
