As a part of continuing ECVET development and implementation, we expect that the Toolkit will continue to evolve over the coming months and years. With this in mind, if you have anything that you would like to contribute to the Toolkit, and share with others, such as an idea for new or additional content, tools, videos, models, examples or guides pertaining to ECVET, the Toolkit team would be glad to receive input at: [email protected].



The ECVET Toolkit builds on a number of past actions, developments and publications, with the following sources worthy of specific acknowledgement, due to their valuable contribution during the initial development of the Toolkit and its content:

  • Cedefop Working Paper No. 14: The Development of ECVET in Europe (2011)
  • ECVET User Guide Part 1: Get to Know ECVET Better – Questions and Answers (2011)
  • ECVET User Guide Part 2: Using ECVET for Geographical Mobility (2012)
  • ECVET User Guide Part 3: Using ECVET to Support Lifelong Learning (2012)
  • Necessary Conditions for ECVET Implementation (2012)
  • FINCVET as a Pioneer (2012)
  • ECVET Pilot Projects
  • Let´s Go Europe! Guidelines for the application of ECVET in the course of mobility periods in VET (2012)
  • Getting the credit your learners deserve: How to recognise achievements during European mobility periods (2013)

Thanks also to staff from the LLP (now Erasmus+) National Agencies in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Turkey and the UK, which together formed NetECVET, the European Thematic Network responsible for initial development of the ECVET Mobility Toolkit.


Particular thanks go to National Agencies in Finland (Mika Saarinen), Germany (Sibilla Drews, Annett Leupold), Austria (Astrid Terreng, Bernd Castellaz) and the Netherlands (Anne Potters, Peter Luijten, Rinske Stelwagen) who, together with external input from Karin Luomi-Messerer (3s, Austria) and Orientra (UK), contributed directly to technical and content development.


Finally, with many of the featured tools and materials produced as a part of past project activity, special acknowledgement is given to all those actors involved in the development and testing of ECVET, over the years, without whom we might not have been in a position to develop an ECVET Mobility Toolkit.
