The aim of the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is to:
- make it easier for people to get validation and recognition of work-related skills and knowledge acquired in different systems and countries – so that they can count towards vocational qualifications
- make it more attractive to move between different countries and learning environments
- increase the compatibility between the different vocational education and training (VET) systems in place across Europe, and the qualifications they offer
- increase the employability of VET graduates and the confidence of employers that each VET qualification requires specific skills and knowledge.
