Cyprus - Funding linked to quality assurance
In Cyprus there is a clear link between the quality of training and funding provided to employers by the Human Resource Development Authority
Cyprus has a centrally planned VET system which includes a quality assurance system for assessing and certifying training providers (i.e. trainers of vocational training, vocational training institutions and vocational training infrastructures). The system sets minimum standards in order to improve the quality of any relevant centrally-funded activity. From 2013 only certified training providers will be allowed to participate in any centrally-funded training activity.
