Romania - A two-stage accreditation process
Romania has a two stage accreditation process for initial VET based on the right to provide training and the right to award qualifications
The Romanian national quality assurance framework in initial VET includes a standardised approach at both the system and provider level. As part of this national quality assurance framework, each initial training provider is required to complete a two stage process:
- provisional authorisation grants training providers the right to undertake educational activities and offer initial VET programmes;
- accreditation grants the training provider the right to issue diplomas and certificates recognised by the Ministry of Education and Research, and to organise examinations.
Independent experts complete an external evaluation of the quality of initial VET providers and their programmes every five years. This considers the extent to which an initial VET provider and its programmes meet the required quality standards.
