The study aims to examine the influence EQAVET and ECVET have had on VET policy developments at national and European level, as well as their relationship with other EU instruments, and consider if and how the instruments can build on what has been achieved so far and maximise their future impact. To do this, the study:
- Provides a comprehensive analytical summary of national VET developments related to quality assurance and flexible vocational pathways and assesses how EQAVET and ECVET have influenced these:
- Examines the relationships between EQAVET and ECVET with other EU instruments such as the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), EUROPASS and the Validation Recommendation;
Based on these analyses, developed and tested a set of scenarios on how the two instruments can develop in future and meet future challenges in VET.
