E-mail Stampa PDF

The EQAVET team has recently released a new online tool that offers national and regional policy makers guidance on how to build and monitor a quality assurance system in vocational training.

The tool details the four steps for quality assurance (Planning, Implementation, Evaluation and Review) and contains links to relevant articles, glossary and more than 50 case studies with different approaches to quality assurance systems used by EU Member States. The tool is based on the 2009 Recommendation from the European Parliament and Council.

The "EU Quality Assurance in vocational education and training tool", in combination with our BEQUAL tool and BEQUAL statistics that demonstrate the actual level of knowledge and implementation of quality standards by VET organisation across the EU, can be valuable instruments in the hands of national and regional policy makers in order to ensure the quality level of the vocatioanl education in the European Union.

Are you a professional organisation, national government, national competent authority for qualifications or a citizen that is interested about the future of the Professional Qualifications in Europe? Then this is your chance to share your views and contribute to the public consultation that has been launched by the European Commission in order to modernise the Professional Qualifications directive.

The reform of the system of recognition of professional qualifications as a means to facilitate mobility is one of the priority actions proposed by the Commission in the Single Market Act. With the view to preparing this reform, the Commission wishes to consult stakeholders on:

  • new approaches to mobility
  • ways to build on achievements
  • and on the modernisation of the automatic recognition

The period of consultation is from 22/06/2011 to 20/09/2011 and the full text as well as the current directive can be accessed from the relevant European Commission page.
