This monitoring report describes how far the European credit system for vocational education and training (ECVET) has progressed in the Member States and the regions.

ECVET is now at a crossroads. It may well become the catalyst for innovation in education and training. But there is a risk that it will become lost among the many European education and training tools. 

What will most determine the success of ECVET is not just the relevant policy decisions, but their wide dissemination.

The entire spectrum of education and training needs to understand how the ECVET contributes to learner mobility, transparency of qualifications, and greater parity between vocational and general education.
