ECVET Experts Conference: Higher VET in Europe – Visions for the future

In some European countries, concepts for qualification pathways in “Higher VET” already exist. However, Higher VET to date is quite far from designating a common brand throughout Europe. 

In Austria, discussions with experts have only just started; with the aim of defining a common vision of what might be labelled “Höhere Berufsbildung”. European transparency instruments, particularly ECVET and NQF/EQF, can support the process by delivering tools for quality assurance and a clearer structuring of qualifications. 

Contributions to the conference will cover European tendencies to Higher VET, as well as highlighting selected approaches in German speaking and northern European countries. Participants will have the opportunity to share their visions for the future of Higher VET by discussing topics such as quality assurance, validation and credit systems, new job profiles, National Qualification Frameworks.
