On-line survey on the future of vocational education and training in Europe

Cedefop, in cooperation with research partners from across Europe, is currently carrying out a study on the ‘Changing Nature and Role of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Europe’. This research supports the European Commission and the EU Member States in setting objectives for post-2020 European cooperation in this area. You can find more information regarding the project here.


An on-line survey has been developed as part of the project addressing VET experts and stakeholders all over Europe. The findings of the survey will help us to validate findings from the first phase of the project as well support the development of VET scenarios to be presented during the VET week in Vienna in November 2018.

As your feedback is important to us, we would like kindly ask you take a few minutes to fill out the survey at the following link.


Please submit your opinion by 15 June
