Aims of the project 'Peer Review in initial VET'

The project aimed at introducing Peer Review as a new instrument for quality assurance and development to the initial vocational education and training sector throughout Europe.

The instrument was transferred from the tertiary sector where the use of Peer Review is prevalent to the upper secondary sector of initial vocational education and training (ISCED 3/4).

A common European standard for implementing Peer Review promotes co-operation and understanding as well as it enhances transparency between the diverse vocational education and training systems in Europe.

Throughout the project, special emphasis was placed on Gender Mainstreaming and on improving training provision for persons at a disadvantage.
