Malta 2017 – International Annual Conference

The European Association of Institutes for Vocational Training (EVBB) will organize this year’s annual conference in Malta and will once again put an emphasis on the issues of crucial importance for politicians, VET providers and the labour market. We want to showcase the best examples of VET, particularly with respect to the integration of migrants and refugees and discuss the challenges that need to be tackled by the parties involved – companies, VET providers and the politicians. If we want to oppose trends detrimental to a solid and competitive growth of the European Union, we must stretch out our hands to those that need assistance and who are the most vulnerable; on the other side of market, we must fight for infrastructural development – whether on the level of the industry or the education institutes.

Our organisation has grown ever since we opened the office of the secretary general in Brussels where we are now very well linked with DG EMPL, DG EAC, DG CONNECT and DG DEVCO. We volunteer in expert working groups in DG EMPL and DG EAC and do our very best to harmonize our efforts with the other big European VET provider organisations, specifically with the European Vocational Training Association (EVTA), itself very much involved in political and project related issues in Brussels.

Our objective is to enhance the image of VET throughout the EU and even beyond, to analyse the requirements of the digital era and to take an active part in implementing the necessary tools so that companies, especially SMEs, stay on track and can face the challenges of the forthcoming digital revolution.

The topic EVBB and its Maltese member PARAGON have chosen responds to the thoughts mentioned above:

Vocational Training in the Context of an Inclusive Society – Experiences, Demands and Perspectives

We expect to host around 120 conference participants from 4th through 7th October 2017 at the Excelsior Hotel in Valletta. Since the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU will have yielded results in the VET and education fields, we will very much look forward to having prominent guests from the political Malta as well.

Call for Participation in the Competition of the
Dr. Adalbert-Kitsche Foundation for the prize award

DIE EUROPA

The prize “DIE EUROPA” will be awarded to projects which are aimed particularly at promoting disadvantaged populations and recognized refugees.

“DIE EUROPA” prize of the Adalbert Kitsche Foundation of the EVBB is a female body about 50 cm tall & winged, standing on the European part of the globe with the imprint “EUROPE TERRANOSTRA” (Europe our country, our homeland). The head of the body is modelled like the head of a peace dove. The sculpture was cast in fine bronze. The artist Ladisłav Dryak wanted to use the sculpture to express the idea of ​​a peace-creating, free-to-air Europe. The wings of the sculpture want to protect this idea and carry it into all countries of Europe.

The prize will be awarded on occasion of the International Annual Conferences of the European Association of Institutes for Vocational Training and is project related. A qualified jury determines the winner according to pre-determined evaluation criteria.

Projects submitted in 2017 will be evaluated and awarded in 2017.

It is in the sense of the founder and the association that especially projects for the disadvantaged will be proposed for the award. All submitted projects receive certificates for successful participation in the competition.
