New European tools for training quality and credit transfer reach practitioners

On 17 and 18 November Cedefop and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture will be holding a launching conference for two new European tools: the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework (EQARF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) in Brussels, with the participation of over 300 representatives of training providers and other bodies and institutions from across Europe.

The aim of the conference is to bring together all stakeholders and  explain what is at stake, show them what has been achieved so far, and inspire and invite them to help shape the process.  

The recommendations of the European Parliament and of the Council on EQARF and ECVET, adopted on 18 June 2009, provide solutions to several issues related to coordination between EU Member States in vocational  education and training (the Copenhagen process): the  mobility of learners in Europe,  quality in vocational education and training (VET) provision and management, and helping learners  create their own pathways to qualification.
