The European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is intended to make it easier for individuals to transfer and accumulate learning outcomes
  • from one qualification system to another,
  • from one training system to another,
  • from one learning pathway to another,
  • inside a country or between countries.

To know more about ECVET, read the Briefing note - On the move: learning and mobility come closer (available in EN, FR, DE, EL, ES, IT).

ECVET was presented at the Launching Conference on ECVET and EQAVET, jointly organised by the European Commission and Cedefop on 17-18 November 2009 in Brussels.
