The operationalisation of the digital logbook symbolises fundamental changes in vocational education and training (VET) in Iceland. It is part of systemic changes taking place in VET, under the Minister for Education and Culture, Lilja Alfreðsdóttir.
The logbook keeps track of the academic progress of VET learners and of the skills they must acquire to master their trade. At the same time, logbooks are now a shared communication platform for the learner, the school, and the workplace, simplifying administration and clarifying the responsibilities of each partner.
The Directorate of Education oversees the project in close cooperation with the schools and a committee under the education ministry.
It is anticipated that the operationalisation of the logbook will increase the attractiveness of vocational education and training (VET).
