- evaluations of quality management.
Learning outcomes evalutions tell whether the objectives of the VET are reached
Learning outcomes evaluations will study whether the objectives of the vocational upper secondary qualification and professional competence required in working life are attained. In addition, competence in common units that are part of vocational upper secondary qualifications is evaluated.
The quality of VET providers’ pedagogical activities and its link with learning and competence is also evaluated in the learning outcomes evaluations.
Thematic evaluations support decision-making and development of education
