Coordination between the European tools: EQAVET, ECVET and EQF has been highlighted as one of the priorities of the EQAVET Work Programme 2010-2012.
In order to enhance this cooperation the Secretariats of the three networks organised a joint seminar: ‘Assuring the quality of VET qualifications – The contribution of EU tools to the definition and re-definition of learning outcomes based standards’. The seminar was held on 14 and 15 November 2011 in Bonn and was hosted by the National Agency Education for Europe at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training.
The report of the seminar and a policy brief will be published in the coming months.
The presentations and photographs from the Joint Seminar are available here.
