vocational education and training
VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING

VET IS

  • Understood in broad sense, covering education and training that aims to equip both young people and adults with knowledge, know-how, skills and competences required on the labour market, for social inclusion and personal development.
  • Provided at different levels (including secondary, post-secondary and tertiary), in formal, non-formal or informal settings, in institutions, companies or other places, andat different stages of people’s lives.

Adapted from Commission Communication on New Impetus for VET

what is evidence
WHAT IS EVIDENCE?

EVIDENCE CAN TAKE MANY FORMS

such as experience and evaluation of practice, the results of scientific analyses, quantitative and qualitative research, basic and applied research, and the development of statistics and indicators. Education and training are part of the diverse cultural traditions and … there can be no simple prescriptions about what makes good policy or practice. This makes it all the more important to know … about what works, for whom, under what circumstances and with what outcomes.

Commission Staff Working Document, ‘Towards more knowledge-based policy and practice in education and training’, SEC(2007)1098, Brussels, 2007

what is policy learning
WHAT IS POLICY LEARNING?

‘Policy’ is about visions for development and the ways to achieve goals.

Learning is successful, i.e. learners acquire new knowledge, skills and attitudes, when they have been actively engaged in learning processes.

VET reform can only be sustainable if local stakeholders have developed their own policy solutions. Reforms need to be embedded in local contexts – local knowledge and initiative is a key source and starting point for change.

The Torino Process offers a platform for policy learning – for sharing experience, reflection and creating new insights, knowledge and consensus on VET policies.

Adapted from ETF Yearbook 2008 Policy Learning in Action
