Twenty years ago, the Copenhagen Process opened a new era for vocational and professional education and training. In July 2020, the European Commission launched the new skills agenda as a follow up to the original Skills Agenda of 2016. It defines 12 actions for upskilling (improving existing skills) and reskilling (training in new skills) for the coming five years. EfVET is always in the forefront not just to support initiatives taken by the EC but also to ensure that member states and in particular training providers in VET and CVET are kept au courant with these developments. In addition, EfVET supports training providers to reflect on the need to update, re-write and connect with key stakeholders to ensure that skills acquired at School, College or Applied University levels are industry driven.
