Conference Vocational Education and Training - skills for a lifetime
Within the framework of The Dutch EU Presidency 2016, there will be a conference on Vocational Education and Training on 16 and 17 February in Amsterdam. The conference will be focusing on vocational education that provides the fundamentals for a starting position on the labour market, and is at the same time capable of responding to learning needs that may arise in a subsequent career. Lifelong learning is therefore one of the three themes in the conference and the overall theme is Skills for a lifetime. The conference provides inspiration and stimulation on three themes of interest to Europe: excellence in VET, lifelong learning and internationalisation of VET.

Entrepreneurship Education NETwork (EE-HUB) is a focal point for
entrepreneurship education in Europe bringing together
organizations and individuals from both the public and private
sectors with strong records of accomplishment in
entrepreneurship education at regional, national and European
level. The network of
experts are committed to entrepreneurial learning and
engaged with organisations or sister networks in the field
and/or with national or regional governments. In addition, MEP
Ambassadors endorse and promote recommendations of
the EE-HUB through their policy work.
Through multiple channels,
the experts in the EE-HUB will collect, analyse and recommend at
least 25 “best practice” from the field and contribute to 85
outreach activities. In peer learning activities and meetings,
they will reach out through their own networks as effective
multipliers and forward these recommendations back to
ministries, organisations and practitioners across Europe.
The EE-HUB is a 3 years project (2015 –2018) co-founded by the European Commission, Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) under the COSME Programme. The consortium managing the EE-HUB is composed of 4 partners: JA Europe, EUROCHAMBRES, SEECEL, EUproVET. Cisco, EY, Intel, Microsoft, Visa, have joined as private sector partners.

THE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF APPRENTICESHIP SCHEMES:
Work based learning (WBL) is high on the European agenda, as it is supposed to bring VET nearer to the demands of the labour market. How cost-effective are WBL and apprenticeships from the point of view of employers.
On the 10th of July 2014 the organisations listed below drafted a joint declaration, also known as the Barcelona Declaration, in which the members have indicated to be willing to make a constructive contribution to the EU2020 agenda.
Together these organisations operate under the name of VET4EU2. This name refers to the four organisations involved in Vocational Education and Training (EUproVET, EfVET, EVTA and EVBB) and two organisations involved in Higher Education (EURASHE and EUCEN).
