International Handbook on Defining, Writing and Applying Learning Outcomes

Description of the Initiative

European Centre for Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop)’s and UNESCO’s are jointly developing an international handbook on defining, writing and applying learning outcomes. Given the growing importance of learning outcomes in international education and training policies, the process involved in preparing the Handbook (2019-2020) allows for a closer dialogue and cooperation between international experts (including from Asia and Europe) in this field. The final product (due end 2020) will support a more consistent use of learning outcomes, a necessary condition for increased international transparency of qualifications.
