EUROPE 2020 STRATEGY
IVET as an attractive learning option with high relevance to labour
market needs and pathways to higher education;
•
Flexible systems based on the recognition of learning outcomes
and supporting individual learning pathways;
•
Cross-border mobility as an integral part of VET practices;
•
Recognition of the mobility training experience has to be ensured
through the use of ECVET;
Validation of non-formal and informal learning provides pathways for
up-skilling and reintegration of people to the labour market.
The adoption of an outcome-based approach for vocational
qualifications, as promoted by the EQF and ECVET, is key to
achieving this;
By 2020, systematic use of EQF, ECVET and Europass aimed at
transparency of qualifications and portability of learning outcomes
IN 2020…
… learners will benefit from higher quality training. …They will
complete some of their studies abroad or there will be foreign
learners in their classes…
… vocational teachers will have more opportunities to cooperate
with colleagues abroad. Their working environment as well as
their teaching and learning methods will be different…
… training institutions will find it easier to cooperate
internationally, thanks to European-wide approaches, such as the
EQF and the ECVET, which make it easier for students to transfer
their learning between organisations…
… businesses will also be involved in delivering training through
providing practical placements for learners.
A COHERENT SET OF

qualifications

ECVET:
ONE OF THE TOOLS
The European credit system for vocational
education and training (ECVET) is one of
several European tools designed to make
qualifications systems more easily
understood and flexible throughout the
European Union and so support more
mobility for workers and learners
THE OBJECTIVES
OF ECVET
Instrument for mobility and recognition
• Recognition of learners‘ achievements
• Stimulating exchanges and mutual trust
(supporting mobility)
• Recognition of learning outcomes without
extending learners‘ education and training
pathways
(facilitating lifelong learning)

LEARNING OUTCOMES
Increases consistency between the European tools (as
they all follow this approach);
Linking the occupational and the educational standards
used for the definition of qualifications and VET learning
processes, and, at a macro level, education and the
labour market;
Introducing a common language;
Clarifying the relationships between different forms and
contexts of learning;
Call for dialogue on the relevance and quality of
qualifications
MEMORANDUM OF
UNDERSTANDING
A MoU is an umbrella agreement
A MoU is an agreement between competent
institutions which set framework for
implement students‘ mobility and for
credits transfer
In a MoU partners identify possible content for
students‘ mobility (learning units)
A MoU establishes partnership‘s procedures
for cooperation

WHY TO USE ECVET IN SCHOOLS
AND IN COMPANIES?
The preparatory phase of ECVET implementation
has started in all European countries
What is the cost-benefit relationship of
implementation?
ECVET can be implemented by linking ECVET to the
needs of education and training
„ECVET is useful when we are thinking about the
quality and quality development of our
education!“
THE ADDED VALUE
OF USING ECVET
Transparency and transferability
Recognition
Fostering mobility, lifelong learning and
cooperation
Positive labor market effects
Improvement of quality of education
Increase the attractiveness of VET
POSSIBLE OBSTACLES
Great variety of VET systems: same/ defferent goals,
different ways
Impact of VET varies in diferent educational systems
Functions and responsibilities of actors vary
Lacking commitment of national authorities
Lacking knowledge/ information of VET teachers and
trainers
Lacking common terminology, templates, (assessment)
standards
