4° ENNE Newsletter June 2020
Dear Reader,

How are you? Despite the current social distancing measures, are you getting back to your daily routine?
In this fourth ENNE Newsletter, you will find the latest news on online events which are planned for the coming months.
Based on its needs and sanitary conditions, each country is deciding how to restart.
ENNE did not stop and, although with online meetings, it continues to develop the next project phases by realizing Focus Groups, especially in Italy and Portugal. Thanks to this, we are expanding our network of contacts with VET schools in Europe.

At this very moment, the school year is coming to an end and some schools are evaluating this first “forced” online teaching experience. Has the coronavirus pandemic really radically changed our approach to learning and teaching or not?
Let us know and share your opinion and experience with us!

Every month we will share the most relevant news, events, and resources in the field of VET, including information about our network members and any other organization that wants to share its good practices in the field of VET!

We are ready to go and you... you could be part of it!

ENNE Project Team


Welcome the Portuguese National Network for the Enhancement of VET
The Portuguese National Network is one of the 5 VET National Networks created within the scope of the ENNE project. The five schools that helped create this network are located in the north of Portugal, they are private Vocational Schools and public Secondary schools offering Vocational Courses in different fields of studies, thus serving a wide audience.


EGInA, in collaboration with IPSSAT "Rocco Chinnici" (Sicily) and Vocational School "G.Penna" (Piemonte) organized two online focus groups to focus on the key aspects of the VET sector.

Participants pointed out the relevance of VET in terms of personal and professional development.




The analysis of the European labour market, during the covid19 pandemic, highlights the risks of social distancing for jobs or sectors. Cedefop explored the sectors with the highest risks: 

  • Personal service workers;
  • Food preparation helpers;
  • Care workers


Skillset and Match, Cedefop’s magazine promoting learning for work analyzed the European situation by publishing the May 2020 issue. The topics discussed with reference to work and VET in Europe are:

  • The importance of an online database that helps VET;
  • The analysis across countries in terms of VET as a methodology to provide them with a toolbox to teach by each other and improve their national programs.
