Its main purpose is to support target groups in effectively improving the levels of integration, with positive effects on individual empowerment, mobility, VET attractiveness and innovation.

The document has two main parts:

  • Part I (Guidelines) addressing primarily the main target users of the project results (VET institutions and organisations providing training for the workplace and companies)
  • Part II (Recommendations) addressing all relevant stakeholders (policy and decision makers, national qualification agencies, quality agencies, social partners, chambers of commerce, confederations of industry etc).

Part I of the document comprises guidelines for integrated VET/workplace training planning, implementation, assessment and certification.

The guidelines are elaborated based on the results of the benchmarking and benchlearning exercise conducted on the VETWORK Project and provide hands-on suggestions on how to improve and make more effective the integration between VET and workplace training workplace, so to allow a reduction of the so-called learning and implementation gaps.

At every section of the Guidelines, some relevant practices/innitiatives are presented, collected from the 50 European projects, representing  companies which display interesting elements, innovative concepts and strategies to integrate the VET provider and the work world. The 50 projects describe practices in the field of VET and World of Work coming from Austria, Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Romania, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Bulgaria, Lithuania and Poland.

In Part II of the document, a set of recommendations are produced for policy and decision makers.

The recommendations are based on EU-level documents, agreed by Member States and the European Commission in the Bruges Communiqué (see References at the end of the document).

This document is a result of the VETWORK PROJECT - Network to strengthen the relation between VET and the world of Work at the governance and implementation levelProject number - 527826-LLP-1-2012-1-BE-LEONARDO-LNW.
