Funds for: Encourage the creation of transnational and national VET providers’ networks
Main beneficiaries: Universities, Training centers

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Encourage the creation of transnational and national VET providers’ networks and partnerships to work together at national and European level;
* Improve the quality and efficiency of VET, enhance its impact and relevance for learners and employers, and build cross-border (transnational) cooperation for VET quality and attractiveness;
* Foster communication, dissemination and support for implementation of the VET policy agenda at EU and national level, to exchange knowledge, feedback and experience of policy implementation and sharing of best practices on VET excellence

Priorities
* Lot 1 – National, regional or sectoral VET provider:
– Establish or strengthen networks and partnerships among VET providers at a national, regional or sectoral level;
– Capacity building and sharing of best experiences among these VET provider organisations, in particular for countries that have limited representation arrangements among VET providers
* Lot 2 – European umbrella VET provider organisations:
– Foster cooperation among European umbrella organisations of VET providers;
– Support policy reflection at a European level as well as outreach capacity to their national members or affiliates;
– Raise awareness and support the implementation of European VET policies through the national, regional and sectoral VET provider organisations

Among financed actions
* Strengthen cooperation among VET providers by engaging in mutual learning, peer counseling, and capacity building, aimed at raising the quality and attractiveness of VET provision;
* Promote and foster the effective use of EU funding instruments, as well as support the implementation and dissemination of relevant EU tools and initiatives8 in the field of VET, whenever possible in national language(s);
* Activities involving and reaching-out to VET providers that do not yet contribute or benefit from European cooperation;
* Contribute to the European Vocational Skills Week, by organising coordinated innovative events and activities at country level, aimed at raising the attractiveness of VET, while reaching out to a wide audience, including parents, learners, teachers, companies, and in particular SMEs;
* Support the development of an internationalisation strategy at providers’ level, fostering the mobility of leaders, staff and VET learners, as well as the establishment of cooperation partnerships;
* Increase the quality in VET through feedback loops to adapt VET provision, in line with the Recommendation on tracking of graduates and the Recommendation on the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework for Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET);
* Support for micro companies and SMEs in developing human capital, through upskilling and reskilling of employees. This could include identification of their skills needs and/or skills assessment, and/or validation and recognition of skills and/or tailored training offer, where relevant taking account of the conclusions of the ET2020 Working Group (2016-2018) on Adult Learning;
* Foster innovative learning of key competencies in VET (for example, allow flexibility and adaptability to meet individual learning needs) by adapting programme design and assessment;
* Promote tools and opportunities for professional development of teachers, trainers, mentors and/or VET leaders to better equip them for future challenges (e.g. digitalisation17), in line with the conclusions of the ET2020 Working Group
