IVETA is dedicated to the advancement and improvement of high-quality vocational education and training throughout the world. IVETA is working to create a new era in communication among different parties in VET.

To further enhance international networking and IVETA’s overall impact, a Cooperation Memorandum with the European Training Foundation (Turin, Italy) was signed in 2013, and two new branch offices were opened, namely in Trinidad and Tobago and in Uganda.
