Refugee migration to Europe present both opportunities and challenges for vocational education and training systems. On the opportunity side, an influx of highly-motivated individuals provides a boost to the labour force, and particularly to sectors that have difficulty filling demand. On the challenge side, refugees often enter host-country labour markets without orientation or even a basic concept of the types of VET and career tracks available. VET VOICES is an ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership that aims to give refugees and other migrants a foot in the door to European vocational training and education.
