The Erasmus + project OnTrack aims to develop a tracking system for graduates of Initial Vocational Education and Training (IVET) at schools and institutes. The main objective of the project is to first thoroughly analyse the context and needs of each project country and on this basis to develop a tracking system at institute level which can later be integrated into the quality assurance system of the VET provider.
The tracking system aims to collect qualitative and quantitative data from VET graduates relating to further training, employment, career paths, labour market relevant skills and competences, etc. This should enable feedback on the quality assurance systems of the training providers and contribute to the further design of VET programmes and planning, implementation and design of learning processes. The data collected should also be of assistance in vocational counselling, in supporting vocational training participants or in networking with the labour market. In addition, vocational training providers are to be supported in establishing the tracking mechanism.
The project started in November 2018 and will end in October 2020. 3s plays a major role in the development of the theoretical framework of the follow-up system and will support the process with its many years of expertise in the field of evaluation and quality assurance.
The project coordination is managed by the Technical University of Kosice (TUKE) from Slovakia, the other project partners are: NAVET (Bulgaria), IDEC (Greece), IEK DELTA (Greece), Eurofortis (Latvia), Astra (Slovakia), Politeknika Ikastegia Txorierri (Spain), Intercollege (Cyprus), and 3s (Austria).
