Italy - a regional accreditation system

In Italy, the Regions’ Accreditation system considers indicators which are related both to professional skills (needs analysis, curriculum planning and evaluation, teaching competences) and to managerial skills (administration, networking expertise etc)

In Italy responsibility for VET provision is held at the national and regional level. Over time there has been increasing decentralisation of responsibility and regional authorities are now responsible for planning vocational training, within and according to a set of national general principles. Italian regions grant accreditation to training agencies for initial, higher, or continuing vocational training.

To gain accreditation training providers the following criteria are considered:

  • quality of management including the need’s analysis process, forecasting processes and the supply of services;
  • the organisation’s structure and technology;
  • the organisation’s economic and financial accountability;
  • managerial competences and professional skills;
  • strength of relationship with other institutional, social and economic organisations;
  • efficiency and quality of outputs (drop-out, placement, etc.)
