Peer Review & the CQAF

The project further developed Peer Review as an evaluation methodology within the Common Quality Assurance Framework (CQAF). Also a European network dealing with the use of Peer Review in initial VET was extended.

Peer Review as an external evaluation procedure supports and taps on the professional expertise and ethos of VET practitioners within European VET institutions. It builds upon self-evaluation of VET providers and constitutes an important new element of the CQAF. A systemic approach which includes stakeholders in the evaluation is inherent in Peer Review. Through the further development, dissemination and valorisation of a European standard procedure for Peer Review in VET, cooperation and mutual trust in Europe is strengthened.
