As national qualifications in Europe move closer to operation, policy integration becomes a key challenge.
Some 140 experts and officials from 27 countries, the European Commission and international organisations exchanged views on the shift to learning outcomes and its impact at the two-day Cedefop conference in Thessaloniki (21 and 22 November).
Based on data from 15 countries, the study illustrates and confirms the diversity of solutions currently applied across Europe.
A lively two-day debate at the Cedefop conference on the shift to learning outcomes and its impact (21 and 22 November 2013, Thessaloniki) concluded that learning outcomes are here to stay but there is still a lot of work to be done.
James Calleja, who took up his duties on 16 October, outlines Cedefop’s central role in promoting European vocational education and training.
