Last December the European partners of 5 countries met in Genova (Italy) to kick off the Leonardo Da Vinci Project Vet QI (Vocational and Educational Training Quality in the ICT sector). The challenge is to elaborate on the European quality parameters of training for the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the Information and Communication Technology sector.
The partnership composed by, Dispos (Italy), Eurofortis (Latvia), MPS (France) , IPF (Spain) and WSBINOZ (Poland) and led by For s.a.s (Italy) is motivated to work and produce a Quality Control System allowing the SMEs’ staff to be more competitive and in the same conditions of large companies, that have already developed high standard quality systems for training. The aim is to develop innovative methods for Vet operators on the basis of the confrontation with market needs, stakeholders’ perspectives and European policies about quality in VET. These themes are all increasingly focused by European policies and are summed up in the EQAVET European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training descriptors, that have been considered as a source of inspiration for the project design.
This is the start for a new challenge aimed at spreading the culture of qualified training in Europe.
