The e-book continues that eu tools corresponding to the ecu skills Framework and the ecu credits procedure for Vocational schooling and coaching are certainly biased in the direction of liberal education regimes. at the foundation of case reports on Germany, the Netherlands and England, it exhibits that the projects have been applied in response to nationwide education structures. therefore, ecu tender legislations doesn't result in a convergence of educating regimes – or, because the publication posits, of welfare states in general.
