Vocational Education and Training throughout Europe

Are you interested in the different Vocational Education and Training (VET) systems throughout Europe? Do you want to know more about the latest developments in VET policy? The European Centre for Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) can help you find all the information you might be interested in regarding VET.

Cedefop is one of the EU's decentralised agencies. The agency supports the development of European VET policies and contributes to their implementation. Cedefop works closely with the European Commission, the EU Member States and social partners to develop VET policy throughout Europe.

Country Data

Cedefop provides up-to-date information on developments in VET in the different EU Member States. These country data give a good overview of the different VET systems that exist in Europe. The analyses fill knowledge gaps and can generate insights that identify trends in and challenges for VET. By comparing country-specific reports between different countries, anyone can learn more about the recent developments in VET. Cedefop not only provides descriptions of how the national VET systems work but also publishes data linked to current European policy priorities.

Bringing people together

Cedefop not only generates knowledge but also brings together policy-makers, social partners, researchers and practitioners to share ideas and encourage debates on the best ways to improve VET policies. By organising theme-based events and projects, Cedefop increases awareness of VET's image and importance and strengthens European cooperation.
