European Commission invites training & education providers for competition!

The 3rd European Vocational Skills Week will take place 5-9 November 2018 to celebrate vocational education and training in the European Union. Within the context of this annual campaign, the European Commission launches the VET Excellence Awards 2018. 

The awards will highlight examples of excellence in four categories: 

  • Companies and learners, 
  • VET innovators, 
  • European funding for excellence, and 
  • European Agencies awards. 

The 2018 awards winners will be selected through a mix of votes from the jury and the general public.This year the awards will be given during the Closing event on 9 November 2018, by Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility.

The goal of the award is to highlight good practices in vocational education and training all over Europe and we are sure that the European Fitness sector has good examples to share.
