The workshop will bring together an extended group of researchers and policy-makers to discuss initial findings of a new project of the European Centre for the development of vocational training (Cedefop) on ‘Future of vocational education and training in Europe’ (2020-2022). The workshop will discuss the extent to which the content and profile of vocational education and training (VET) is changing and the challenges and opportunities arising from this. Particular emphasis will be given to the changing relationship between occupationally specific and transversal skills and competences and how this may influence the relevance of VET qualifications to learners and employers.
