Assuring quality in vocational training

The ETF approach to promoting quality assurance in VET is based on a conceptual framework focusing on five key areas: policy and governance; qualifications standards; provision; assessment, validation, certification and data. It comprises sample measures and indicators, has a European and international perspective, and aims to support the development of a quality culture. More details can be found in the ETF publication "Promoting quality assurance in vocational education and training: the ETF approach".

In 2017, ETF launched the Forum for Quality Assurance in VET. Representatives with responsibilities for quality assurance in VET from government ministries and national authorities/agencies from South-Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean participate. Member countries are supported in modernising and improving quality assurance in VET through transnational peer learning. Aligning with EU policy for quality assurance in VET, including the Reference Framework, and linking with the EQAVET Network provides access to EU/Member States’ developments and facilitates wider networking.
