Survey results show progress in knowledge of social circular economy among VET students

We are pleased to present the results of our recent survey conducted as part of the “SCE-VET: Anchoring Social Circular Economy attitudes in VET” project. This project aims to improve the understanding of Social Circular Economy (SCE) principles and integrate them into the curricula of vocational education and training (VET) centres. In this way, we aim to equip future professionals with essential green skills and promote a sustainable economic mindset.

The survey was conducted twice during the project period: once at the beginning and once at the end.

– The first survey aimed to measure VET students’ knowledge of social circularity, social entrepreneurship and circular economy concepts. This survey also provided valuable insights into the necessary aspects, tools and materials that should be included in VET training to make SCE more visible and to identify essential SCE competences.

– The second survey, conducted at the end of the project, focused on evaluating the impact of our online courses on students. It assessed how many students completed the courses and the progress made in their understanding of these critical issues.

A total of 275 VET students (approximately 30 VET students from each partner country) from a range of courses took part in the 2nd survey. Key findings from the survey:

  • By now, 47% of the participating students had fully completed the online courses.
  • There was a significant improvement in the students’ understanding of social circular economy concepts.
  • Students reported increased awareness and willingness to apply SCE principles in their future careers.

We are excited about the progress and positive impact these courses have had on VET students. For a detailed look at our survey results, please visit our project website:
