The EQAVET Work Programme 2013-2015 makes provision for the establishment of two working groups with the objective of supporting the implementation of the EQAVET Recommendation in a way which embeds a culture of quality assurance within and between Member States, strengthens the quality assurance of VET and supports the broader EU policy agenda in relation to VET.
The working groups address the following tasks:
- Working Group 1: Facilitating the development of a QA approach for VET providers in line with the EQAVET Framework (Bruges Communiqué strategic objective 2b)
- Working Group 2: Supporting VET systems to address the interrelation between the EQAVET Framework and existing quality management systems/instruments in order to in order to guarantee quality, increased transparency, mobility and mutual trust (Bruges Communiqué strategic objective 2a)
Each working group comprises members designated by Member States and representatives of the social partners. The groups are guided and supported by appointed quality assurance experts.
Working groups provide an opportunity for sharing experiences, discussion on policy examples and production of policy-useful material to support the best use of the Reference Framework according to specific national requirements. They build on existing expertise and aim to contribute effective solutions to the issues faced by participating countries, whilst significantly contributing to progress in the work ahead.
