Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVE) provide training in specific areas for the initial training of young people as well as for continued up-skilling and re-skilling of adults. However, CoVEs are also designed to achieve much more: to innovate teaching and learning methods, to work closely with businesses, social partners, universities etc., to develop inclusive approaches to ensure nobody is left behind, and to foster regional and local development, among other activities.

This Erasmus+ action aims to create innovative and responsive vocational education and training (VET) institutions capable of rapidly adapting skills provision to economic and social needs. It aims to create synergies between partners from all over the world in the creation of skills ecosystems. Moreover, this action will provide young people and adults with the skills for fulfilling careers in an innovative, inclusive and sustainable economy.

The European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), in cooperation with the European Commission, organised an online info session on CoVE 2023 on 27 January 2023 from 10:00 to 12:00 (Brussels time).
