A new Cedefop briefing note highlights the double demand from policies on vocational education and training (VET) qualifications: they must be relevant at national and local levels while also internationally comparable.
On the last day of the Portuguese EU Presidency (30 June), Cedefop organised its 10th Brussels seminar with the Presidency to discuss future-proofing vocational education and training (VET) skills and competences.
Cedefop unveiled the results of a study aiming at a European methodology that will allow the comparison and analysis of the content and profile of vocational education and training (VET) qualifications.
A collaborative work of Cedefop, UNESCO, ETF and UNESCO’s Institute for Lifelong learning, the Global inventory of national and regional qualifications frameworks captures and analyses global trends in qualifications frameworks.
Comparing the content of qualifications across European countries is part of Cedefop’s work on understanding qualifications, initiated more than two decades ago.
Cedefop actively contributed to the policy learning forum (PLF) on the conceptualisation and use of learning outcomes, in Johannesburg, on 24 and 25 June.
The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an informal meeting between states in the two continents. Cedefop, ETF, UNESCO and UNESCO’s Institute for Lifelong learning co-drafted the 4th edition of the global Inventory of national and regional qualifications framework and presented findings at the 7th ASEM education ministers' meeting, in Bucharest on 14 May.
As national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) are being implemented, their benefits and added value become increasingly visible. Cedefop’s latest European inventory on NQFs gives an overview of the frameworks’ progress.
