The workshop built on and explored the interim findings of the Cedefop project 'Comparing vocational education and training qualifications: towards a European Comparative methodology’.

Seeking to develop a robust and scalable methodology for comparing the content and profile of qualifications, the project seeks to strengthen the ability of national and international qualifications experts to learn from each other and on this basis be able to systematically improve the review and renewal of qualifications.

The workshop looked into the conceptual challenges facing such a methodology as well as the technological opportunities currently emerging in this area.

The workshop gathered international experts and researchers working on comparative methodologies from different angles.
