New CEDEFOP database

New CEDEFOP database

CEDEFOP (European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) launches a new platform with data from VET systems across the European Union, Iceland and Norway. It consists of a comprehensive database to help understand similarities and differences of national VET systems, with "detailed information about each VET programme type, including qualification levels, share of work-based learning, providers and target groups".

The VETFest team has already explored the simple, well organized database and found it a very useful work tool, that will for sure strengthen the results of our project. Information is organized under 15 categories, equal for all countries. One very important feature is the "comparison" one, which allows to compare countries and apply filters to better reach the results.
