Product Quality Guide
Title Quality Guide
Product Type others
The Quality Guide offers practical support to users /facilitators of the Toolkit on how
to implement the Toolkit. It explains Quality Assurance and Management in everyday
language and how these are of relevance to VET. It also includes information on the
Quality (PDCA) Cycle, the importance of Work Based Learning, professionalisation of
VET staff and Innovation in Quality Actions.
We designed a quality guide based on:
- the recommendations from the international research report
- the toolkit instruments, including transferred best practices
- a selected set of recommendations from the QALLL project to be transferred in a new practical guide, usable in VET education to enhance bottom-up quality culture.
Target group Teachers/trainers, quality staff and management.
Introduction to quality assurance and improvement for teachers/trainers in a practical way;
explanation of the last phase of the Quality Cycle, the review phase;
adressing the need to include learners and the workfield in quality improvement;
the connection to European tools like EQARF, EQAVET, NLQAVET and ECVET and the recommendations of both the QALLL project and the member states' VET-representatives at the Vienna quality conference in November 2012.
