The Erasmus + KA202 project - Strategic partnerships for vocational training "The Quality of DualVET" was born after having ascertained and noted the need to measure the quality of Dual Vocational Training and to carry out an objective and standardized international evaluation of the apprenticeship application process which is gaining ground above all in countries recently engaged in experimenting with this system of professional training.
These needs have been identified as a result of contacts between the Vocational Training Centers (CFP) in Italy and Spain with the Employment Centers (CPI), which especially in Andalusia are supporting the first to carry out this project. To achieve the objectives set in this project, the project coordinator, IES Hermanos Machado of Seville (Spain), considered it necessary to include the following profiles as a partner:
"The Quality of DualVET" is therefore designed with partners from countries recently engaged in the experimented training model of apprenticeship (WBL - Work Based Learning - Work Based Learning) and partners who belong to a country where these professional paths are which have long been applied with multi-year successes and therefore can make a substantial contribution by making use of their knowledge and experience in the practical field, not only for the implementation of this system, but also for its management and evaluation.
The project involves the design of 2 intellectual products:
The expected impact of the project is the reasoned presentation between the partners of the good steps taken, through the training support of the German experts, who will constructively illustrate their educational system, showing its strengths and weaknesses. (Non-expert project partners) will be able to apply the new ideas and results achieved in quality measurement and assessment in their daily work in Dual Vocational Training being also able to implement the procedures to be incorporated into their Dual Vocational Training Plans.
In the medium term, the training courses of the Universities will include the results achieved in the Guidelines on the evaluation and quality of Dual Vocational Training. In the long term and as an innovative digital tool, the corresponding Ministries responsible for education, training and work undertake to make their own intellectual results of the procedures for the control, monitoring and evaluation of the dual Vocational Training Programs in their regions and countries. The "The Quality of DualVET" project integrates the results of the projects: Erasmus + KA2 "EQAVET in practice" 2015-1-SE01-KA202-012245 and the Erasmus + KA2 project "Dual-vet partners in Europe" 2017-1-ES01-KA202 -038512.
