A study was launched by CEDEFOP in 1998, in order to inform the policy debate regarding the effectiveness of national vocational qualification structures in meeting the challenges posed by a rapidly changing labour market. The study focused on five EU countries, with the aim of analysing characteristics of national qualification frameworks, and highlighting similarities and differences. The five countries studied were Germany, Spain, France, the Netherlands, and the UK (England and Wales). The findings of the study are presented in three volumes. This volume identifies key themes and developments across the five countries. Volume 2 contains the individual country reports and looks at recent developments in national standards, qualifications and classification structures. Volume 3 focuses on the key issues within higher educational qualifications.
