Austria - Building a culture of quality
A crucial precondition for the successful implementation of a quality management system such as the Austrian QIBB (= Qualitätsinitiative Berufsbildung / Quality Initiative VET) is to involve all stakeholders who should participate actively in the quality process. Therefore, in QIBB objectives are reached by way of negotiation and agreement between the key actors at the different levels.
Since 2006, QIBB has been gradually implemented at all VET school types throughout Austria (schools and colleges of engineering, arts and crafts; schools and colleges of business administration and educational counselling; schools and colleges of social and services industries and of agriculture and forestry; part-time vocational schools).
