At the 2010 TiE Network Conference in Prague, I presented a paper demonstrating a couple of tools that Standards Verification UK has developed and manage which facilitate the transparency and recognition of VET trainer qualification, in particular the Comparison Tool: see www.tariff.svuk.eu/itt-comparison
Currently, under the remit of the sponsors, it is targetted for VET trainers who wish to work in England. It is limited in its scope and detail. However, we believe this is a very valuable tool for facilitating the mobilty of VET trainers from and to any European (or other) country and so a proposal for the adaption and development of the tool is being worked up. However, it’s important to back the proposal with evidence of need and use gathered from the those involved.
So, I am seeking your opinion on the value of the Comparison Tool, whether you are an employer, a VET trainer or an agency/organisation working in the interests of VET and invite you to complete this short questionnaire: www.surveymonkey.com/s/QCVETT
Please remember the current tool was developed for the English market- what do you think it needs to be really useful for Europe? If it is adapted and developed – do you think it will have a value to facilitate mobilty – a main aspiration of the European Union?
I would appreciate your time and value your opinion: www.surveymonkey.com/s/QCVETT
