Publication by the Cedefop (June 2010): "Linking credit systems and qualifications frameworks An international comparative analysis"
Credit systems and qualifications frameworks are pivotal to modernising education and qualifications systems.
This research study reviews the development of those tools in Higher Education and VET, across a sample of European and non-European countries (Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Scotland, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, the UK-EWNI (England, Wales and Northern Ireland) and the UK-Scotland.
It analyses initiatives with credit systems and qualifications frameworks, and the articulation between both tools to support development of learning pathways (transfer and progression), governance of education and training systems, and qualifications policies.
