Cedefops latest publication is a detailed comparative study of how education and training policies and practices in 32 countries are moving toward the learning outcomes approach.

The study illustrates the impact of this approach on policy development at European and national level; the development of curricula and standards; improvement of testing and assessment; and teaching and training practices.

The study also addresses how European cooperation in all areas of learning - including higher education - integrates this approach, as illustrated by the ongoing work on the European and national qualification frameworks.

The study will also be available in print in March 2009. Last June Cedefop published a booklet with an extract of the study.
