A Standardized Practical Toolkit to Implement EQAVET – VET21001

VET21001 supports managers, employees, trainers and teachers operating in Vocational Education and Training Institutions in implementing the European Quality Assurance Framework for Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET).

EQAVET was developed and published as a European Parliament and Council Recommendation over a decade ago and evidence shows that Member States have made progress in the implementation of the EQAVET Recommendation to varying degrees.

As ISO 21001 comprehends all EQAVET indicative descriptors at VET provider level and provides more detailed requirements specifically targeted to improve educational organizations (including VET providers)’ processes, it could be used to further guide and improve the quality assurance at VET provider level.

In order to support Vocational Education and Training Institutions in reaching these objectives, the project will:

  • Develop a gap analysis on the adoption of EQAVET in the partner countries and at European level

  • Identify the competence profiles of different EQAVET stakeholders such as implementers and evaluators

  • Design a curriculum and materials for the acquisition of identified competences

  • Design the rules for an accredited certification scheme in EQAVET and ISO21001

  • Create a toolkit with a standardized approach to facilitate and support the implementation of EQAVET criteria
