Global com­pa­ra­ti­ve study of qualifications

This study was based on the comparative analysis of the profile and content of four vocational education and training qualifications in 26 countries across the world, and from four different continents.

The com­pa­ra­ti­ve study focused on intended learning outcomes and aimed at iden­ti­fy­ing simi­la­ri­ties and dif­fe­ren­ces between qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons. This should enable national sta­ke­hol­ders to reflect on their own choices and prio­ri­ties in relation to the design of qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons and in turn inform the potential deve­lo­p­ment of gui­de­li­nes for cross-country reco­gni­ti­on of qualifications.

The study was carried out in close coope­ra­ti­on with Cedefop, UNESCO, and the ETF (European Training Foundation), who each com­mis­sio­ned one strand of the project; 3s experts (in coope­ra­ti­on with Ockham IPS, NL) were involved in all three projects.
