Several actors evolving in education for adults and vocational training decided to tackle the topic of Responsible Training. Today, FORMETHIC counts 70 members, including vocational training centres, salaried or independent trainers and job seekers.

Active members of FORMETHIC build benchmarks on best practices in vocational training. FORMETHIC is working on pedagogic innovation with its INNOVATION Committee. Its members follow trends on e-learning or face-to-face courses, co-construction of knowledge, collaboration, design thinking, learning through play and courses codesign.
