Welcome to ReferNet
The European network of reference and expertise in Vocational Education and Training (VET).

The European network of reference and expertise in Vocational Education and Training (VET).

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. Network activities are focused on documentation and information exchange on developments in VET policy and research across the European Union.

ECCTIS Ltd was the coordinator of UK ReferNet from January 2012 - January 2021, jointly funded by Cedefop and the UK Department for Education. Following the departure of the UK from the European Union, there is no longer a UK ReferNet and this information is provided as an archive for information purposes.
