Marketing Text The 'Implementation of Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (VET) Institutions - A Manual for VET Providers' was developed after the whole EQAVET piloting experience in Malta. The Manual includes practical advice on how to implement EQAVET and how to tackle challenges which may arise throughout the process. The Manual can be used by any Maltese (or foreign) VET institution, whatever its size or factor.
The Manual is made up of 3 main sections.
Section 1 - The Background to Quality Assurance in VET section provides to the user background information on Quality Assurance. A questions-answer format is used to make it easier to read through the first part of the Manual.
Section 2 – Stocktaking your current quality system and mechanisms section will help the user understand better those quality assurance processes which are already present in the institution. This section informs the user that the institution does not need to start everything from scratch, but can build on already existing good practices. This section informs the user that even if the institution may think that it has never really done much about ensuring quality, the institution may still have relevant and valid processes in place.
Section 3 – Implementing EQAVET section. After having read about quality Assurance and carried out the stock-taking exercise, the user is informed that the next step involves aligning the institution’s QA system to EQAVET. The user is also made aware that before such a thing happens, first there needs to be a number of basic principles which the institution needs to have instilled within.
Target group Any Maltese or foreign Vocational Education and Training Institution, whatever its size or factor.
Result More EQAVET compliant Quality Assurance Systems, hence more trustworthy VET Qualifications and more trust and recognition of qualifications across countries.
