Self-assessment for centres of vocational excellence
The tool enables ENE members to establish a baseline for their own development in relation to the performance and achievements of other centres of vocational excellence (CoVEs) in the network. CoVEs can establish their priorities and actions based on their own aims and environments but also taking into account what other CoVEs – nationally and internationally – have achieved. CoVEs can also use the tool to review their progress over time.
The tool was designed by the ETF taking into account other frameworks for vocational excellence, self-assessment tools and research. The draft tool was critically reviewed by ETF and external experts and tested and reviewed by CoVEs in EU Member States and ETF partner countries.
ENE is currently working on 10 themes:
- Lifelong learning and vocational excellence
- Education-business cooperation (e.g., work-based learning, public-private partnerships)
- Pedagogy and professional development
- Entrepreneurial dimension of vocational excellence
- Industry 4.0/5.0 and digitalisation
- Autonomy and institutional development (financing, leadership, governance)
- Going green – supporting sustainable goals
- Smart specialisation – mobilising innovation, ecosystems, and SMEs
- Excellence in social inclusion and equity
- Career guidance and vocational excellence
Under each theme, an additional section has been created relating to leadership and coordination. ENE aims to support both the development and the transmission of excellence. This section particularly addresses transmission and sharing.
