The workshop presented the final findings of the Cedefop project 'Comparing vocational education and training qualifications: towards a European Comparative methodology’. Seeking to develop a robust and scalable methodology for comparing and analysing the content and profile of qualifications, the findings of the project is relevant to a wide range of purposes and stakeholders.

The workshop presented a series of use-cases where a systematic analysis and comparison of learning outcomes can support researchers, policy makers and practitioners involved in the development as well as review and renewal of skills and qualifications.

The workshop allowed for a discussion on how to strengthen the feed-back-loop between education and training and the labour market; and thus provide a better link between the supply and demand of skills and qualifications.  

The workshop gathered selected international experts and researchers working on comparative methodologies from different angles.

The conference will present the initial findings of Cedefop’s project on Microcredentials for labour market education and training.

The discussion will focus on the results of the mapping exercise regarding the role, the perceived relevance and use of microcredentials within vocational and professional education but also their independent use by companies and sectors.

The event will gather selected international experts and researchers from different angles to support the understanding of how microcredentials are influencing national and international qualifications and certification systems.
