Catalyzer for public-private partnerships in vocational and professional education

Community of Practice Centres of Vocational Excellence

The project leaders of all Erasmus Centers of Vocational Excellence have joined forces in the CoVE Community of Practice. In this community the project leaders share experiences, inspire each other and jointly try to find solutions for common issues they encounter while implementing the Centers of Vocational Excellence. By doing so, the project leaders are supporting each other and no one has to reinvent the wheel. The CoVE Community of Practice is a bottom up initiative by and for the CoVE project leaders and participation is voluntary. Furthermore, the Community of Practice is working closely with other stakeholders and policy makers in the field of VET and higher education.
The CoVE Community of Practice is more than happy to welcome project leaders of future Erasmus Centers of Vocational Excellence in their midst and to share experiences of the existing CoVEs. The project leaders aim to meet twice a year face to face and have monthly online thematic discussions, based on the needs of the project leaders.
