ReferNet is a European network initiated by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop). It aims to meet the growing demand for comparable information on policies and developments in the area of vocational education and training (VET) in the European Union.
VET experts work together in the national ReferNet teams of the 28 EU member states plus Norway and Iceland. The ReferNet coordinator in Germany is the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB). Have a look at our ReferNet flyer (update 2017)!
You can participate until 15 July!
Groups of vocational education and training (VET) learners in the European Union can share their VET photo stories for a chance to win a trip to Vienna or Thessaloniki.
