VET qualifications and programmes offered at EQF levels 5 to 8 which do not fall within the overarching qualifications framework of the European Higher Education Area (QF-EHEA) were the main focus of the international conference on 22 November at the Albert Hall Conference Centre in Vienna.

The third international ECVET experts conference was organised by the Austrian National Agency Erasmus+ Education (OeAD GmbH) with the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. Around 70 participants from 12 European countries took part in the conference.

The contributions of the conference covered European trends towards Higher VET (presented by Karin Luomi-Messerer, 3s) and highlighted approaches in Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Sweden. A representative of DG Employment gave an outlook on the future of VET in the EU.
