ReferNet

ReferNet is a network of institutions created by Cedefop in 2002 to provide information on national vocational education and training (VET) systems and policies in the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. The network helps Cedefop understand the legal framework and the institutions involved in running VET in each country and monitor developments and trends in VET policies.

The core business of ReferNet has changed during the past decade, from documentation to policy analysis. Besides providing data and information on VET systems, the network is also called upon to provide in-depth analysis of how each country is progressing in its implementation of common policy objectives in Europe. [more]
