Developing a sustainable culture for change in VET 

A PROJECT ABOUT EVALUATION AND QUALITY DEVELOPMENT IN VET

The aim of the project is to contribute to developing a culture for change at the educational institutions that participate in the program European VET Development Initiative under The Velux Foundations

Experience shows that it can be challenging to implement lessons learnt from development work in everyday school practice - particularly if the goal is long-term sustainability.


Research indicates that successful implementation requires regular assessment and systematic adoption of what has been learnt, as well as the establishment of an organisational structure to support sustainable quality development, requiring a culture of adaptability.

“The initial challenge for research is to establish concepts of quality and to assess whether quality is enhanced.

This requires that the participants at the schools are able to systematically collect data based on their specific development objectives.

Next, the challenge is to develop models for equipping schools to implement sustainable change,”
