CVET

CVET (Continuing Vocational Education and Training) is a form of learning that cannot be substituted by others, whether higher education, general education or initial VET (Cedefop, 2014b).

Education or training after initial education and training, or after entry into working life aimed at helping individuals to:

  • improve or update their knowledge and/or skills;
  • acquire new skills for a career move or retraining;
  • continue their personal or professional development.

CVET is part of lifelong learning (LLL) and may encompass any kind of education (general, specialised or vocational, formal or non-formal, etc.). It is a part of adult learning oriented towards professional development and it is crucial for the employability of individuals.

Moreover, considering that the project is targeted to low skilled adults, only the trainings accessible to low skilled people were taken into consideration. In order to do so, the criteria used followed the European Qualification Framework.
