    Project Description

    Introducing quality assurance framework in Vocational Education and Training (VET) has become a priority for Member States in recent years. The European Quality Assurance Reference Framework for VET (EQAVET) provides a European-wide system to help Member States and stakeholders to document, develop, monitor, evaluate and improve the effectiveness of their VET provision and quality management practices. The EQAVET in Practice project aims to develop guidelines for the effective interpretation of EQAVET’s criteria to national framework based on the inputs from providers. The innovative nature of the project is a top-down approach to criteria, descriptors and indicators of EQAVET with a bottom-up provider need approach. The result will be a common framework with criteria which are workable and possible to implement. In this way EQAVET becomes a European tool/instrument used by VET providers with real practical impact on quality in VET.
