Method Comparison: Cross-national comparison using a common template (COMPETE)
Description "This involved a European comparative analysis of policy and taxonomies - a cross-national comparison of the systems in place in 12 European countries, using a common template. The template allowed for categorisation of the countries on the following dimensions: 
  • policy, legislation and regulation (definitions of VET training; key policy and legislation instruments; regulatory bodies; accreditation systems; funding mechanisms for E&T; social inclusion policies and initiatives); 
  • provision and the market (school-based; college-based; work-based; informal learning; providers and levels of provision); 
  • occupational classification systems (national classification systems; regional and local systems; models used); 
  • skills taxonomies (skills standards; content models; methodological approach; classification dimensions; accreditation; monitoring)." 
(Cullen, 2001, p. 16, 34)
