National education systems descriptions
The Eurydice Network produces Eurypedia – the European Encyclopedia on National Education Systems, an online resource for understanding education systems.
Eurypedia is regularly updated. Eurydice at NFER updates the system descriptions for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The topics on ongoing reforms and policy developments for England, Wales and Northern Ireland are the most recently updated, in March 2013.
Further information including details of other recent updates are available on this website.
Eurydice at NFER is the unit for England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the European Commission information network on education - Eurydice. The network provides reliable, comparative information on education systems and policies in Europe.
Eurydice at NFER serves policy makers at European, national and local government level and, where relevant, makes information freely available to the wider education community on this website.
We have also produced a series of briefings on various education topics including:
|education systems||school organisation and management||curriculum and assessment|
|higher education||children's services|
Eurydice at NFER is managed by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER). See our 'About Us' pages for further information regarding the Eurydice network, Eurydice at NFER and some of our other international work.
