Evidence of effectiveness
The effectiveness of the instrument is measured by the Region every year through a dedicated survey focused on the employment of IVET students who successfully concluded the courses. The last available survey covers the 2014/2015 students and their employment situation between June 2015 and October 2016. The surveyed students with a Qualification/Diploma have been 1,061; 49% of them had at least one job lasting for more than one month in this period; and the job is consistent with the IVET Qualification/Diploma for the 75.8% of those who had/have a job. The majority of the employed had a fixed-term (27%) or an apprenticeship (23.8%) contract, and almost 13% of the final students decided to continue in studying in upper secondary education. Both the instrument's benefits (mostly at students' level) and beneficiaries were as expected. No relevant unexpected benefits or costs emerged from the implementation of the instrument throughout the years.
Engagement of stakeholders
The instrument definition and operation involve only the Region, on the one side, and network of regional-based IVET providers, on the other side. No other stakeholders, of any kind, are engaged in the instrument. Before giving the IVET providers' network the general indications for defining the instrument, the Region involves the Social Partners in a consultation every year, regulated by the VET and labour market regional law, aimed at focusing the IVET system priorities in relation to the evidences coming from training and occupational needs/demand surveys and analyses.
