Developing VET-Quality by using ECVET-Units (Quality by Units)

The aim of the project was to show how (units of) learning outcomes used as an organizational principle in vocational education and training can be used in order to achieve a higher quality in the process and effects of VET. The project applied two elements of ECVET technical specifications: the development of units of learning outcomes and the appropriate competence assessment procedures for the units of learning outcomes. Partners from countries with different VET systems wanted to test a commonly applicable didactic concept for improving the quality of education. The focus was on the qualification/ working area ‘Mechatronics’. The VQTS Competence Matrix ‘Mechatronics’ was used as the starting point for the work in the project.
