A ReferNet – a szakképzés témaköréhez kapcsolódó információk gyűjtésének, elemzésének és terjesztésének strukturált és decentralizált európai hálózata. A hálózatot az Európai Szakképzés-fejlesztési Központ (Cedefop) hozta létre 2002-ben azzal a céllal, hogy az EU tagországainak szakképzési rendszerei, a tagállamokban zajló fejlesztések és az alkalmazott szakpolitikák összehasonlítását lehetővé tevő információkat gyűjtsön.

    ReferNet - European network of reference and expertise in vocational education and training, a structured and decentralised European network for the collection, analysis and dissemination of information related to vocational education and training.

    The network was established in 2002 by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) with the purpose of collecting information which allows for the comparison of the vocational education systems of EU Member States, developments taking place in the Member States and applied professional policies.

    ReferNet provides information on the developments of vocational education policy and research, publications, conferences and other vocational education and training-related initiatives in the Member States, while the members of the network perform dissemination activities at national level as well.

    Based on the guidelines previously established by Cedefop, the members of the international ReferNet network report on the current state of national vocational education and training and related policy in the form of annual reports. The country reports, vocational education and training policy reports, brief accounts, bibliographic information, as well as various related databases prepared in Hungary in recent years can be downloaded from the Cedefop's website.

    ReferNet’s free and public products and services are accessible through the Cedefop's website:

    • VET-Bib  (vocational education and training bibliography)
    • Country reports (VET in Europe)
    • Vocational education and training policy reports
    • News on VET and AL 
    • Database of vocational education and training-related events 
    • Freely downloadable Cedefop publication

     

     

    The information exchange conducted within the framework of ReferNet is decentralised and the network is based on the national consortia established in 28 EU Member States, as well as in Norway and in Iceland by key partners with vested interests in the field of vocational education and training. The network brings together organisations with the shared interest of developing opportunities for vocational training and education, stimulating the exchange of information supporting the creation of partnerships. Each consortium is directed by a national coordinator who is responsible for the satisfactory fulfilment of the network’s tasks.

    Hungary joined to the network in 2004.

    ReferNet – European network of reference and expertise in vocational education and training

    ReferNet - a structured and decentralised European network for the collection, analysis and dissemination of information related to vocational education and training. The network was established in 2002 by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) with the purpose of collecting information which allows for the comparison of the vocational education systems of EU Member States, developments taking place in the Member States and applied professional policies.

    ReferNet provides information on the developments of vocational education policy and research, publications, conferences and other vocational education and training-related initiatives in the Member States, while the members of the network perform dissemination activities at national level as well.

    ReferNet consists of the national consortia established in the individual Member States, consisting of the representatives of the most important institutions – public administration bodies, social partners and research institutes – active in the field of vocational education and training. Each consortium is directed by a national coordinator who is responsible for the consortium and the satisfactory fulfilment of the network’s tasks.

    The network incorporates organisations with the shared interest of developing vocational education, training and learning opportunities. The network stimulates the exchange of information and supports the creation of partnerships. The network also provides an opportunity for the members of the consortia to expand their ties with other international organisations both within and outside Europe.

    The Hungarian ReferNet national consortium was established in 2004 by the Observatory Centre for Educational Development acting as the national coordinator. The network has since expanded with new members on multiple occasions. Since 2016, the Hungarian ReferNet national consortium has been operated by the National Institute of Vocational and Adult Education.

    The members of the network assist the national coordinator in performing ReferNet activities by transmitting information for database development and reporting purposes and through peer-reviewing of ReferNet reports. Members have an opportunity to debate their current activities performed in the field of ReferNet tasks, as well as in their respective fields and that of vocational education and training at regular ReferNet sessions.

     

     

     

     

    Established in 1975, the task of the European agency of CEDEFOP – European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training – is the promotion of vocational education and training within the European Union. Initially based in Berlin, CEDEFOP was one of the first specialized and decentralised agencies to be established. Its directorate was relocated to Thessaloniki in 1995, while maintaining a liaison office in Brussels.
