How does ECVET work?

ECVET relies on a series of common goals, principles and technical components that centre on the recognition of learning outcomes and achievements for European citizens undertaking vocational education and training, irrespective of the learning context, location or delivery method.


ECVET works hand in hand with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) to provide greater transparency in European qualifications, promoting the mobility of workers and learners, and facilitating lifelong learning.


ECVET brings together a wide range of actors, at local, national and European levels, with a view to encouraging its wider implementation and use, particularly in learning mobility.
