ReferNet offers comparable information on VET across Europe. It was established by the
European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop).
The network provides a decentralised information exchange, based on national consortia in
participating countries, made up of VET stakeholders.
ECCTIS Ltd is the coordinator of UK ReferNet from January 2012. This UK network is jointly funded
by Cedefop and the UK
Department for Education.
Network activities are focused on documentation and information exchange on developments in VET policy
and research across the European Union.
We act as a VET portal between the UK and other countries, and answer requests for information.
