  Implementing common EU tools: how far have we come?

Implementing common EU tools: how far have we come?

Cedefop has long contributed to the conceptual and practical aspects of the European common tools, including the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET). These instruments are meant to complement each other, but each faces its own challenges in terms of implementation. In May, a Cedefop workshop, Mainstreaming ECVET to practitioners (30-31 May), examines a thus far neglected aspect of implementing the credit system: how the system affects training provisioners and their staff. Also this month, the Hungarian Presidency conference on the EQF (25-26/5) looks at the progress achieved across Europe, which challenges and tasks lie ahead, and what we have learned so far from Member States’ efforts to link their national qualification frameworks with the EQF.
