Individual learning pathways in vocational education and training

Vocational education and training aims at increasing a student-centred approach, individual studies, and flexibility. Emphasising identification and recognition of prior learning has allowed shifting the focus of the education and training on acquiring the missing competence. For instance, cooperation between education providers has been increased to enhance students’ opportunities for choices and better flexibility of studies.

The evaluation is focused on individual learning pathways. The evaluation will produce information on the functionality of the practices related to the personalisation, identification and recognition of prior learning as well as guidance, and students’ opportunities for choices.

The provision of special support in vocational education and training is assessed as part of the evaluation of individual learning pathways. Read more about the evaluation of the provision of special support here.
