The European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is the new European instrument to promote student mobility in Vocational Education and Training (VET).

ECVET’s purpose is to enable recognition of learners’ achievements during periods of mobility by creating a structure, bringing a common language, and stimulating exchanges and mutual trust among VET providers across Europe. In the context of international mobility but also mobility within countries, ECVET aims to support recognition of learning outcomes without extending learners’ education and training pathways.
