Thematic Teams Seminar 2022

EfVET organised the Thematic Teams Seminar 2022 which took place from May 3 to 5, 2022 in Lyon, France.

The event was hosted by SEPR (Société d’Enseignement Professionnel du Rhône) and attended by more than 130 VET practitioners mostly from the European Union and Western Balkans countries.

The seminar was conceived to boost the collaboration among the Thematic Teams, giving them the possibility to experiment new formats of collaboration and learn from each other.

Members of all Thematic Teams, namely Internationalisation & Learning Mobility, Industry and Technology 4.0 in VET, Entrepreneurial Learning, Tourism, Sustainability through VET, Technology Enhanced Learning, and Inclusive Vocational Excellence, organised working activities, presented success stories and held workshops aimed at generating new synergies among them.

More specifically, two parallel working sessions were held every day – one in the morning and one in the afternoon – plus additional field visits were organised in relevant organisations in Lyon. Keynote speakers also intervened to give some inspirational insights.

EfVET collected activities and workshops proposals by its Members to be carried out during the parallel working sessions.
