Netherlands - The quality network for VET providers

In the Netherlands, within an overarching education framework set by the government, VET providers (schools) have a high level of autonomy. Each school is responsible for the quality of training and education. Within this framework 43 schools cooperate in a Quality Network ( The participants support each other to improve the quality of their education and training. This support includes sharing information and experiences, training staff to review the quality of VET provision and reviewing the system of quality assurance used by a school to monitor and improve VET. The Quality Network aims to review all its member organisations every three years.
