QC-VET. Promoting Quality Culture in VET

DOCUMENTA starts a new European project of the Erasmus+ programme aimed at developing a guidelines handbook and good practices to engage VET teaching staff in the implementation of quality programmes.

The kick-off meeting of the project was carried out in the Greek city of Volos, 5th & 6th December 2016.

qc volos1The importance of quality aspects in VET has been highlighted by EU in many declarations as in Bruges 2010. The practical result has been the development of Common Quality Assurance Framework (CQAF) and lately the European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQVET). A thematic network (QALLL) was created with aimed at improving the standard of vocational education and training. QALLL recognized 39 projects in quality assurance as best practices to be disseminated in EU among VET providers.

Folkuniversitetet, promoter of this project, was representing Sweden in QALLL-network. The working experience in many quality assurance programmes has highlighted a common issue: the hindrances in the implementation quality systems at provider level and the effectively use by a significate number of VET providers. The main reason is that “quality” has different meanings for the staff categories in VET centres.
