The project “From the Good to the Best – Quality in Vocational Education and Training” intended to increase in quality of teaching and training in Europe. A betterment in teaching of VETPRO (Vocational Education and Training Professionals) will increase the quality of VET in general and of VET-systems.

In the „Good to Best“-project we

  • defined basic terms in VET,
  • identifyed indicators of quality in VET-teaching (structures, curricula, methods, accessibility to vocational qualifications for disadvantaged learners),
  • investigated the necessary competences of teachers / trainers on a regioanl level in our partner nations and
  • discussed how to facilitate continuing professional development for VETPRO,
  • gained an overview of the current situation of social partners participation in VET and
  • made recommendations on how to increase the involvement of social partners in VET policy design.

Here’s the ProjectPresentation .

The partner organizations:

The project supported the exchange of trainers best practice “know how” and promoted the mobility of trainers and learners. This was documented by using the EuroPASS.

Learners were involved in the partnership meetings as well as to the regional conferences held with network partners from VET-institutions, local learners and SME / NGO.

The project lead to better individual professional competences and its occupational advancement and of course more occupational mobility for VETPRO in the future.
