The ReferNet Network offers comparable information on VET across Europe. It was established by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) to provide information exchange on developments in VET policy and research across the European Union.
ECCTIS Ltd was the coordinator of UK ReferNet from January 2012 - January 2021, jointly funded by Cedefop and the UK Department for Education. Following the departure of the UK from the European Union, there is no longer a UK ReferNet and this information is provided as an archive for information purposes.
A sample of past publications from UK ReferNet can be found below. For information on the current network, please consult Cedefop.
