Erasmus+

EU programme for education, training, youth and sport

The initiative on Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVE) supports a bottom-up approach to Vocational Excellence involving a wide range of local stakeholders. It enables VET institutions to rapidly adapt skills provision to evolving economic and social needs, including the digital and green transitions. CoVEs operate in a given local context, being the linchpin of skills ecosystems for innovation, regional development, and social inclusion, while working with CoVEs in other countries through international collaborative networks.

What are Partnerships for Excellence?

The Partnerships for Excellence support projects with a long-term sustainable perspective. The following actions are supported under this type of partnerships:

  • Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs)
  • Erasmus+ Teacher Academies
  • Erasmus Mundus Actions:
    • Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters and

These actions are managed by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).
