Quality matters

In our last online poll, we asked our users what they thought was the hottest topic in education and training out of the following:

  • Governance of education and training systems
  • Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
  • Quality assurance in education and training
  • Work integrated learning
  • Youth unemployment

Quality assurance in education and training came in first with 30 per cent of the votes. We are now investigating this topic further to see what value added resources we can provide in VOCEDplus on this subject. To help us with this investigation, please participate in our follow up poll on what specific aspect of quality is most important.

Research says...

'Countries with a higher integration of school and work, through apprenticeship programmes or through more young people effectively combining school and early labour market experiences, display a smoother and quicker transition from school to work.' See Mapping youth transitions in Europe, a recent Eurofound publication which analyses the labour market situation of young people in Europe, focusing in particular on the school-to-work transition.
