Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a key element of a comprehensive approach to address employment next to investment and improved business and trade climates. VET should be instrumental in providing the workforce, particularly young people, with skills that respond to labour market needs and are inclusive to all, ultimately contributing to employability for all. The overall objective of these trainings is thus to improve knowledge among EU staff on VET in developing countries, allowing them to better design and support programmes in these areas and deepen policy-dialogue with partner countries.
