Sweden - The role of stakeholders in the quality assurance of the design of national qualifications
When a qualification in the upper secondary VET system in Sweden is designed or reviewed, there are established mechanisms to quality assure the process. This case study illustrates the system level processes for designing, reviewing or redesigning a qualification, and the quality assurance processes which are used with stakeholders and social partners. The case study covers initial VET which is based in work and in VET schools.
Quality assurance is part of the work of the national programme councils. These councils are composed of a broad cross-section of industry representatives and social partners in the vocational area for which the programme provides education and training. Some programme councils include representatives from the public authorities. One of the tasks of each programme council is to advise and support the National Agency for Education in relation to the adaptation, development and modernisation of the supply of education and the content of vocational education.
