What is ECVET?

ECVET is the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training, a tool that supports lifelong learning and flexibility in learning pathways, including EU Mobility.

It relies on a series of common goals, principles and technical components that foster transparency and comparability in VET. The most important aspect is the focus on learning outcomes to show what a learner knows, understands and is able to do upon completion of a learning process.

Thanks to ECVET it easier for people to get validation and recognition of work-related skills and knowledge acquired in different systems and countries – so that they can count towards vocational qualifications.

Detailed information about ECVET and its procedures can be found in our video, in the ECVET toolkit but also at the following pages.
