About ReferNet
Netherlands

ReferNet Netherlands is a joint project of ECBO and Cedefop. ReferNet’s task is to disseminate VET-related information to and from Europe.

ReferNet is a EU-wide network of institutions created by Cedefop in 2002. It provides information on national vocational education and training (VET) systems and policies in the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. Each national partner is a key organisation involved in VET in the country it represents.

Cedefop is one of the EU’s decentralised agencies. Founded in 1975 and based in Greece since 1995, Cedefop supports development of European vocational education and training (VET) policies and contributes to their implementation. The agency is helping the European Commission, EU Member States and the social partners to develop the right European VET policies.

ReferNet provides up-to-date information on national vocational education and training systems. We collect information on, and monitor developments in, national VET policies and systems. This information is used for different purposes and products.
In the Netherlands, ECBO, part of CINOP, is the national ReferNet partner of Cedefop. The activities of ReferNet Netherlands are co-financed by Cedefop and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).
