ECVET

         ECVET is a technical framework for transfer, validation and, where appropriate, accumulation of learning outcomes by individuals, to achieve a qualification.

ECVET

ECVET tools and methodology comprise a description of qualifications in units of learning outcomes with associated points, a transfer and accumulation process and complementary documents such as learning agreements, transcripts of records and ECVET users’ guides. ECVET is based on the description of qualifications in terms of learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and/or competences), organized into transferable and accumulable learning units to which credit points are attached and registered in a personal transcript of learning outcomes [CEDEFOP; European Parliament and Council of the European Union, 2009].
