Monitoring and evaluating work-based learning in vocational education and training
Interested in managing existing work-based learning schemes by incorporating monitoring and evaluation methods? Following a brief discussion of the concept of work-based learning, this handbook presents the rationale for monitoring and evaluation as part of good governance. The functioning of work-based learning schemes is represented by a process model comprising four stages: input, process, output and outcome. For each of these four stages, examples of relevant indicators and tools from several countries around the globe are presented. These tools cover the following topics: support from companies and learners, financial resources, costs and benefits, curriculum design, quality of training staff, organisation of the learning process, use of digital technologies, assessment of learners, learning achievements, and labour-market outcomes.
