Called “l’enseignement professionnel” in France, “ammatillisen koulutuksen” in Finland, “yrkesfaglig utdanning” in Norway and “beruflichen Bildung” in Germany, every country has it in some form. OBESSU (Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions) is a platform for national school student unions, who represent also the students in Vocational Education and Training.
Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a valuable education that secures a successful transition into the labour market, and can help bring down youth unemployment. VET students are the experts when it comes to their education and therefore they should be represented in all decision-making processes. Vocational Education and Training is the education for the professionals of tomorrow. Now it is the time to Claim Your Voice and work for better Vocational Education and Training.
