The most common grade awarded for the vocational skills demonstrations in audio-visual communication was “excellent”. There is still a long way to go before the objectives set in the VET reform are met as only just under one third of the skills demonstrations were arranged in workplaces. In addition, considerable differences were discovered in working life relevance between VET providers.
Evaluation of vocational competence in the upper secondary level vocational qualification in audio-visual communication was implemented between 2013 and 2016. In the evaluation, the students who had started studying for the vocational qualification in autumn 2013 were monitored until spring 2016. The evaluation data was obtained from the grades given for vocational skills demonstrations and from supplementary data describing the arrangement of such demonstrations. The evaluation comprised a total of 23 providers of vocational education and training (VET) and more than 500 students.
The final report was published in 2018.
