Cedefop’s study visits team organised a workshop on ‘Enhancing quality in schools and VET institutions’ in Bonn on 17 and 18 February.
The workshop brought together 30 participants and organisers of study visits on the topic of quality assurance in schools and vocational training institutions, representatives of initiatives identified as examples of good practice during study visits and experts on the topic involved in EU projects and networks. They discussed the findings of the two peer learning study visits on “Quality assurance mechanisms in schools and training institutions” that took place in Vilnius (Lithuania) on 27.09-01.10.2010 and in Hamburg (Germany) on 29.11-03.12.2010. The workshop provided a better understanding of policy and practice in internal and external evaluation in schools and VET institutions in EU countries. It produced recommendations for policy and decision makers responsible for setting the right conditions at system and provider level to promote an evaluation culture in schools and VET institutions.
