Volume 3 on the Future of Vocational Education and Training in Europe

The third volume of results from our three-year Cedefop project on the future of VET is now available. This time focusing on assessment in IVET.

The report shows that forms of assess­ment in IVET are con­stant­ly being reformed in the countries studied, under­li­ning their essential importance for improving quality. One of the questions addressed in the study was whether the objec­ti­ves set out in national curricula, qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on standards and programme descrip­ti­ons are enhanced or under­mi­ned by the pre­vai­ling assess­ment approa­ches. Numerous chal­lenges and starting points for further impro­ve­ment were identified.

This part of the Future of VET project was coor­di­na­ted by Karin Luomi-Messerer, who co-authored the report with Monika Auzinger and Mariya Dzhengozova.
