Project title – European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training – National Reference Points

Duration of the project implementation: 2019 – 2021.

Donor: Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) / Schools, Vocational Training, Adult Education, Platforms (ERASMUS+)

Project objectives: Serbia has recently joined the EQAVET network. The aim of this project is to set the ground for quality assurance in vocational education and training at national level. The main objectives will include the analysis of national and European quality assurance frameworks, the establishment of the NRP work in Serbia, the promotion of EQAVET and QA to policy makers, relevant ministries as well as the national Qualification Agency. The NRP will cooperate with other countries in the EQAVET network to facilitate exchange and peer learning.

The NRP activities will include among others the organization of a national conference, the publication of the dedicated web pages in the web site of the Ministry and the translation of materials. A study on the national and the European quality assurance policies and frameworks with special focus on VET will be performed and will serve as the key research report during this period. A series of follow-up events will serve to promote EQAVET, a culture of self-evaluation and the use of QA frameworks and also to obtain information on the state of implementation of quality assurance frameworks in Serbia.

A second conference will present the results of this analysis and the activities of the EQAVET network and NRP. Synergies will be sought with EQF and other relevant bodies on the national level; many of the activities will be implemented in close cooperation with the Agency for Qualifications.
