Webinar of ETF Forum for Quality Assurance in VET: Quality assurance of work-based learning

The Forum for Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (QA Forum) of the European Training Foundation organised a webinar dedicated to the quality assurance of work-based learning (WBL), on 16 June. The purpose of the webinar was to explore and discuss quality assurance arrangements for work-based learning (WBL).

The ETF QA Forum is a transnational collaboration initiative between national institutions with VET quality assurance mandates in ETF's partner countries. The aim of the Forum is to support member countries to modernise and improve quality assurance in VET. 

WBL in vocational education is an increasing priority among the ETF partner countries, as in the European Union, to improve skills and employability, and enhance economic competitiveness and social inclusion. While WBL can be a win-win-win situation providing benefits for all major stakeholders involved – the learner, the employer, and society - it poses specific questions in terms of quality assurance at the level of VET system, providers and enterprises. The webinar addressed exactly these issues.
