Monitoring ECVET implementation strategies in Europe

Cedefop Working Paper Number 18


The European credit system for vocational education and training (ECVET) Council recommendation 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 VET qualifications at all levels of the EQF’.

This report is the third Cedefop monitoring exercise and analyses developments in ECVET from June 2011 to September 2012. Its main objective is to provide an overview of the situation regarding the necessary conditions for ECVET in 32 countries.

The results are varied: although most countries are committed to ECVET implementation and are progressing in developing necessary conditions, there is still progress to be made.

The report shows that it is necessary to mainstream efforts, bringing together different developments and working on synergies with other European tools.
