Marketing Text Country Desk Analysis Reports on existing mechanisms and arrangements that facilitate permeability in education and training
This document contains the Italian, Austrian and Dutch partners’ countries’ overviews and selected case-studies on permeability between VET and HE. More specifically, two research instruments were used by partners for information and data collection i.e.:
- Based on desk research (literature review of relevant EU and national sources)
- May include quantitative data on persons who benefited from VET-HE permeability and / or usage of credit systems
- May include considerations on the applicability of Be-TWIN methodology in partners’ countries
- They focus on the permeability mechanisms exemption and/or full equivalence (one case study per partner country)
- Based on desk research and/or interviews.
Education and training institutions involved in all project phases.
Competent bodies and policy-makers in charge of the design and certification of education and training programmes
Educational/pedagogical staff: professors, trainers, training programme managers, persons in charge of the international development within their educational institution
The research design strives to compare national experiences from three countries. Furthermore, the consortium is of a very composite nature; re-uniting experts from various backgrounds (not necessarily sharing the same concepts, terms of reference or research methods) and having diverging degrees of experience in pilot projects in VET and HE.
The research direction (3s research laboratory) lent special attention to methodological issues and the development of comparative methods in order to exploit the advantages of comparison and achieve cross-fertilisation among partners’ contributions. The development and discovering of a common terminology has also been considered crucial in the process towards transnational cooperation and joint comparative research activity.
