Overview of vocational education and training systems in Europe published

In a new publication Cedefop offers a concise insight into vocational education and training (VET) systems in 30 countries: all EU Member States, Norway and Iceland.

The Spotlight on VET series compilation is addressed to those who need a quick overview of VET’s essential features in Europe. The publication presents main accession and progression routes for learners; types and levels of qualifications they lead to; types of programmes, delivery modes, work-based learning ratio and duration. Spotlight on VET helps national and international readers understand the different systems and allows for some comparisons.

This publication is a useful starting point for policy-makers, social partners, experts, researchers and journalists. It also provides orientation to other actors involved in VET-related activities: VET providers, teachers and trainers; guidance, qualifications and validation staff; and to other readers who want to familiarise themselves with VET systems across and beyond Europe.
