QC-VET: Quality Culture in Vocational Educational and Training

QC-VET TOOLS

In the context of the QC-VET project, four individual tools have been developed in order to support motivation and engagement of VET staff in the implementation of quality initiatives at VET institutions/organisations.  

Who are they for?

These Online Tools are addressed to Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers, who aim at motivating and engaging VET teaching and administrative staff in the implementation of quality initiatives.   

How can these Tools help me?

The VET providers will find a set of tools that can be used to assess the level of staff involvement and compliance with specific quality indicators and specific Guidelines that provide specific ways to VET providers for the enhancement of Quality Assurance Systems according to EQAVET (European Quality Indicators in Vocational Education and Training).

THE TOOLS – AT A GLANCE!

This is where the “Promoting quality culture in VET“ project is aiming at!

The overall objective of the project is to support VET leadership in motivating and engaging VET teaching staff in the implementation of quality initiatives at VET institutions by improving prior elaborated guidelines.

These guidelines promote the engagiment and motivation of teaching staff regarding quality initiatives in 4 different phases of the quality cycle  (planning, implementation, evaluation and review). The guidelineswill be developed based on the EQAVET quality cycle in an interactive form in five different languages. The guidelines will be supplemented by best practises, practical advice and examples.

The impact of the project will be:

  • the empowerment of teaching staff with regards to quality initiatives in VET-organisations,
  • enabling VET-organisations in overcoming the present barriers in utilization of evaluation results of QA-initiatives in their review and improvement processes,
  • facilitating the work of EQAVET in monitoring the impacts of their Quality models and indicators in VET-organisations at EU-level.

Does it sound familiar?

Many efforts on achieving quality in VET have taken place in the past. The innovative nature of the QC-VET project is the elaboration of guidelines according to the EQAVET quality cycle (Planning, Implementation, Evaluation and Review) complemented by practical best practices and checklists. This will:
  • Facilitate further motivation and engagement of teaching staff in quality initiatives,
  • Enable teachers’ active participation in review and planning for improvement of the VET activities,
  • Promote a shared vision on VET education and quality perception within VET institutions, and
  • Promote EQAVET as a common European-wide platform for quality assurance in VET since the guidelines will be based on the quality cycle, indicators and descriptors of EQAVET.
