While many countries are well on their way to implementing the European credit system for vocational education and training, credit transfer is still not an integral part of vocational education and training systems. Moreover, there is still work to be done on making all common European tools - the European Qualifications Framework, quality assurance mechanisms and lifelong guidance, as well as ECVET - work as a seamless whole.

This is Cedefop's third analysis of developments in ECVET from June 2011 to September 2012 in 32 countries. The Council recommendation on ECVET (DATE) calls on Member States to ‘create the necessary conditions and adopt measures so that as from 2012 it is possible for ECVET to be gradually applied’ to vocational education and training (VET) qualifications at all levels of the European Qualifications Framework.
