Since 2016, EfVET has celebrated excellence in Vocational Education Training and Adult Education. EfVET was founded in the Netherlands 25 years ago and is still an association according to the Dutch law.
The Dutch EfVET members decided on the 16th of June 2016 to honor EfVET and give an award to the EfVET organization to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
This award is intended to honour people, organizations, or projects that have had a lasting and important impact on promoting, improving or innovating VET education, specifically at the European level. The award is a floating trophy and will be handed forward to the new winner each year at the annual conference of EfVET.
The jury always consists of the president of the Dutch EfVET board, a member of the executive board of EfVET and the last winner of the trophy.
The winners of the Award for Excellence will be announced at EfVET Conference in Azores, Portugal.
