Summary

The "European Solutions in Quality Assurance - ESQA" project will be carried out by a partnership of 4 institutions from Poland, UK, Estonia and Slovenia. It is focused on exchange of experience and information on quality assurance in partner countries in order to create the catalogue of good practice supporting VET schools and their supervising bodies as well as policy makers in performing their tasks connected with quality assurance. The project results should show them what a positive impact effective quality assurance mechanism and tools may have on schools, their students and the school surroundings, enrich their portfolio of quality assurance and evaluation tools and encourage to use them.
The project is addressed to VET school headmasters and teachers who are responsible for school quality assurance and internal evaluation as well as the representatives of bodies supervising and running VET schools.
