DOREA encourage VET organizations to be active and work towards improvement of transfer, recognition of non-formal and informal education. One of the possible tools is The European credit system for vocational education and training (ECVET) that helps individuals who are trying to acquire a VET qualification to move between countries and gain access to lifelong learning. It complements and builds on concepts and principles shared with the European qualifications framework (EQF), Europass and the European quality assurance reference framework for VET (EQAVET).
We should all take a step in being a part of change in education!
