CEDEFOP – European reference levels for education and training: promoting credit transfer and mutual trust

This report focuses on two key areas: (a) how zones of mutual trust (ZMTs) operate, and whether they are useful for both understanding how transparency arrangements operate and for framing public policy designed to improve access and progression (in employment, education and training); (b) whether an agreed framework of levels would help allocate qualifications and accumulated experience effectively to improve ZMTs – particularly in increasing Europe-wide cooperation in vocational education and training.

The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) is the European Union's reference centre for vocational education and training.
