The Annual ECVET Forum 2017 will take place on 19 – 20 October in St Paul’s Bay (Qawra), Malta. It will focus on the role of ECVET to promote flexible vocational pathways. The programme will explore and discuss what national examples exist to show how flexible VET pathways can be granted and what are the success factors. The Forum will also look at the role of ECVET and how ECVET can further inspire reforms towards more flexible vocational pathways.
The first day (19 October) will take stock and explore recent national VET reforms and how they relate to the principles of flexible vocational pathways. During the first day, a market place will give participants an opportunity to present and demonstrate outputs of projects and programmes implemented in Member States. The second day (20 October) will look forward and discuss the potential role of ECVET to further inspire reforms towards more flexible vocational pathways.
