The EQAVET Quality Assurance reference framework for vocational education and training is based on the 2009
Recommendation of the European Parliament and Council. Currently VET providers are using
many different approaches to quality assurance. Some of these are in line with existing national or
international quality assurance systems. Others have been designed to meet the VET provider's own
circumstances. EQAVET is an approach to quality assurance or a reference framework for VET which has been
agreed by Member States. The Quality Assurance National Reference Points across Europe play
an important role in supporting the implementation of the EQAVET reference framework.
EQAVET offers VET providers a straight forward way to monitor and improve the quality of their provision.
It is based on the four stage cycle of planning, implementation, evaluation and review which is at the heart
of many other quality assurance approaches. This web resource provides guidance on how to develop a quality
assurance approach and contains examples of different approaches used by VET providers.
Set up clear, appropriate and measurable goals and objectives in terms of policies, procedures, tasks and human resources.
Establish procedures to ensure the achievement of goals and objectives
(e.g. development of partnerships, involvement of stakeholders, allocation of resources and
organisational / operational procedures).
Design mechanisms for the evaluation of achievements and outcomes by collecting and processing data in order to make informed assessments.
Develop procedures in order to achieve the targeted outcomes and / or new objectives.
After processing feedback, key stakeholders
conduct discussion and analysis in order to devise procedures for change.
