Quality Assurance (QA) has become increasingly important for institutions providing Vocational Education & Training (VET) and the educational authorities throughout Europe. One particularly promising instrument of QA is Peer Review. Peer Review is a form of voluntary external evaluation with the aim to support the reviewed educational institution in its efforts for QA and continuing quality improvement. PEER REVIEW for EQAVET* project transferred, pilot tested and adjusted the European Peer Review Manual and Toolbox for VET to National Quality Assurance system of participating countries. Moreover, it developed Training Programs, Methodology and Tools for Training the “Peer Trainers”, the “Peers” and the “Facilitators” and a ‘European Community Network for Peers’. PEER REVIEW for EQAVET project was coordinated by DIMITRA. * PEER REVIEW for EQAVET project has been selected as a Best Practice to be included in the web-based “Toolkit for policy makers, social partners and VET providers” created by the European network “NetWBL – Thematic Networking on Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeships”, a large partnership consisting of 29 countries and National Agencies from across the EU. The group is managed by the NA Education for Europe at the Federal Institute for VET (NA-BIBB).
