Estonia - A five year development plan

The Tartu Vocational Education Centre in Estonia uses the EFQM Excellence Model to conduct an annual self-assessment. Since 2002 a team of 20, including representatives of teaching staff, middle and top management has been active in promoting quality assurance and development planning. This team’s activities include:

  • developing the approach to quality assurance
  • optimising the organisation’s structure
  • creating a shared organisational culture
  • redesigning development planning
  • ensuring the satisfaction of students, employees and stakeholders
  • promoting self-assessment and reflection
  • participating in quality award contests

The Centre’s five year plan (2008-2013) was prepared by staff members, students and stakeholders. It includes the following three targets:

  • create a well-functioning working and learning environment
  • ensure high employability for graduates
  • ensure the sustainable development of the institution
