The study provides an overview of the state-of-play of international cooperation in VET across EU/EFTA countries, with both developed and emerging economies.
It explains how international organisations focus their work on VET, and analyses the success factors and challenges when engaging in VET internationalisation. Finally the study also presents a set of recommendations for future actions at European and national levels, which provide a good basis for a broader discussion with EU VET stakeholders on how best to pursue efforts to modernise our VET systems through internationalisation strategies.
The study was managed by ICF International. The present report was co-authored by Stephanie Oberheidt, Daniela Ulicna, Laura Eid (ICF International) jointly with Hanne Shapiro (Danish Technological Institute (DTI)) and Karin Luomi-Messerer (3s).
These core team members were also supported by a team of country researchers from these institutions (3s: Monika Auzinger, Mariya Dzhengozova, Janine Wulz, Lubomir Valenta).
