VET in Ireland 5

Conclusions


Conclusions
Conclusions

  • The 2010 OECD report on learning for jobs in Ireland listed a number of the strengths of the system, including:

    • diverse post-school VET provision by a diverse range of providers

    • good collaboration with the Social Partners

    • innovative ways of engaging employers in the provision of VET

    • a well-structured apprenticeship system

    • a comprehensive national framework of qualifications (NFQ) covering all kinds and levels of general education and vocational education and training

  • Of these, the NFQ stands out as one of the most influential developments in E&T in Ireland in decades:

    • coherence and transparency to the previously fragmented, incoherent and virtually incomprehensible array of qualifications

    • true potential in terms of access, transfer and progression has yet to be realised

    • development of the embryonic RPL system would be a first step in the right direction . . .


Challenges
Challenges

  • An examination of VET in upper secondary schooling - to determine its strengths and weaknesses. Following on - a widespread public debate about the nature of upper secondary and the options and alternatives at the nation’s disposal

  • Quality - development and assurance - in VET in the interests of relevance, equity, efficiency and effectiveness

  • Given that staff is a key determinant of quality in VET, a comprehensive review of staff qualifications, the gaps therein and measures to address them

  • Development of a comprehensive data system to underpin VET policy & practice

  • Monitoring methodologies to establish a data chain based on the principle of ‘collect once, use many times’ and linking all levels from individuals to providers to policy-makers to national and European monitoring bodies

  • Finally, and immediately, the ‘big bang’ change needs to be managed - to maximise the benefits and minimise the threats for the greatest number possible
