National News on VET − short articles on recent events and developments in VET and VET-related labour market issues in all partner countries.
Thematic perspectives − a publication series on VET supplementing the general information on VET systems in partner countries. The topics covered often feature actual VET challenges, the priorities of the EU Presidencies and flagship initiatives in vocational education and training.
