About this Organisation:
The National Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training Development (NCTVETD) through the EU Phare TVET projects, developed the National Quality Assurance Framework (NQAF) for TVET in Romania, based on the Common Quality Assurance Framework (CQAF), and two main instruments for quality assurance at provider level: the Self-assessment Manual, based on the European Guide on Self- assessment for VET providers and the Inspection Manual for external monitoring of TVET providers.
NCTVETD coordinated the pilot application of the two manuals during 2003-2005 school years in 22 TVET units acting as resource centers and during the 2005-2006 school year in 122 TVET units from among which 22 resource centers. NCTVETD is the main initiator of the proposal of generalizing the manuals at national level, for all TVET providers, beginning with 1 September 2006.
NCTVETD is the initiator of the National Reference Point (NRP), structured as an inter-institutional coordination structure whose role is to apply national and European QA strategies and measures in VET. The NRP includes experts of national institutions which have certain attributions regarding QA for Initial and Continuing VET: the Ministry of Education, Research and Youth, the Ministry of Labour, Family and Equal Chances, the Romanian Agency for QA in Pre-university Education, the National Adult Training Board, the National Centre for Vocational Education and Training Development.
