On 17-18 November in Brussels Cedefop and the European Commission’s DG Education and Culture are presenting two new European tools: the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework (EQARF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET). This technical launch of the new tools aims to examine how best to involve all stakeholders in implementing them, and to ensure that all related measures operate in tandem.
The workshop held this week in Cedefop, Testing the European Qualifications Framework, proved to be particularly fruitful. Project promoters and stakeholders reported on the challenges that the EQF must overcome by 2010 to become a useful “translation tool” between various kinds of qualifications.
