Summary: EfVET is pleased to invite you to its next Annual International Conference on ‘VET-safe port for youth and business!, which will take place in Porto, Portugal from 22-25 October 2014. The economic and social landscape globally is forever changing. We live within a global marketplace. Economic activity is no longer limited to local, regional or even national boundaries; social mobility and indeed worker mobility has become more flexible and dynamic, international in nature. The speed of technological innovation and development continues to proceed a pace, placing greater need for new and higher skills within the labour market. This years’ theme takes this a step further recognising that VET Institutions cannot meet the skills challenges alone. Greater collaboration and engagement with the business community is crucial, combining both theoretical and practical training in the workplace.
