Changing the narrative: vocational education and training in the digital age

Since the crisis of the youth labour market, school-to-work transitions have become extended, with many young Europeans deciding to pursue vocational education and training (VET). Vocational training helps young people to take responsibility early on, improves their employability and equips them with cutting edge skills. However, many people remain sceptical when hearing the merits of apprenticeships and work readiness programs. How can we change the representation of VET students and underrepresented groups in general? Can technology help in raising the attractiveness and status of vocational education and training?

Join us to discuss how to change the narrative around VET.
