The aim of this study was to explore examples of standards used internationally in order to inform and support the work of the panels of professionals that will take forward the development of the technical routes being introduced in England.

The study was conducted through selective, rapid desk research combining a selective literature review and direct interrogation of vocational education and training (VET) websites in a small selection of countries.
