VET in Europe - 2016 Country Report Germany

ReferNet publishes new country report

The country report "VET in Europe – 2016 Country Report Germany" belongs to a series of country reports that provide an overview of the VET systems in all EU member states plus Iceland and Norway. The reports are compiled by ReferNet, the European information network initiated by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop). The VET in Europe reports provide readers with a concise, basic insight into the state of the vocational education and training system of each country and situates the system within a broad political, social, economic, and labour market framework.

The current report on Germany focusses on external factors influencing VET, the importance of lifelong learning, qualification development and promoting participation in VET.
