VET-CERT - Qualification as a Way to Quality


The VET-CERT project sought to promote the competence development of individuals with quality management responsibilities/responsibilities in quality management in IVET (initial vocational education and training) and in adult education.

The project supported the continuing systematic implementation of the ‘QIBB’ VET quality initiative, of the ‘Ö-CERT’ framework in adult education as well as the implementation of the EQARF for VET (i.e. the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework for Vocational Education and Training) in both sectors. The project was coordinated by ARQA-VET, i.e. the Austrian Reference Point for Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training. 3s, jointly with ÖIBF, provided support and assistance to ARQA-VET for concept-related aspects and development tasks. 3s developed a curriculum framework for the further education of various target groups in the different fields of vocational education and training as well as adult education. Furthermore, 3s was responsible for developing (the development of) a concept for the certification of individuals subsequent to the completion of their training.
