Through this part of the website the project members aim to bring special events under your attention:
The first special event for the new QUAL4T2 project if our participation in the EfVET international conference in Thessaloniki (Greece).
Members of the Steering board will be present at the ICERI conference, to promote the pilot products of the QUAL4T2 project. This will be done with dissamination activities focussed on targetted participants such as poster sessions and presentations, that will be planed during the conference. Promotion material as flyers and articles will be used to inform the general audience.
ICERI2017, the 10th annual International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation will be held in Seville (Spain) on the 16th, 17th and 18th of November, 2017. ICERI is one of the largest international education conferences for professionals from the educational sector, lecturers and researchers. After 10 years, it has become a reference event where more than 700 experts from 80 countries will get together to present their projects and share their knowledge on teaching and learning methodologies and educational innovations. The 2017 edition of ICERI is sure to be among the most successful education conferences in Europe.
ICERI is more than a conference. It is an ideal platform for international strategic networking, the best place to present your innovations and projects about education and technology.
In July 2017, Qual4T2 project coordinator Margrieta Kroese participated in a special meeting in which national decision makers and regional VET-organisations talked about the future continuing quality assurance in Vocational education and training (VET) in The Netherlands.
In this meeting the Ministry of OCW was presented by mrs. Van den Boom. In behalf of the Inspectorate mr. Lankmeyer was participating. The national VET-counsil was represented by mr. Romme.
Eight Dutch quality advisors were invited, representing 8 different VET-organisations: ROC Nijmegen, Koning Willem 1, ROC WestBrabant, ROC TOP, Aventus, ROC van Twente, Hoornbeeck and of course Landstede.
The group discussed the Education report 2016, in which it seemed that the improvement in Quality within VET is not continuing in the way it was in 2015. The quality experts of the VET organisations gave their own views on this. Second topic was: How to further improve and change the quality culture in a school. As this is one of the main topics in the QUAL4T2-project, Margrieta Kroese informed the participants about the outcomes of the research phase, and the development of the quality guide and toolkit for teams. All representatives got the project brochure, and Mrs. Alie Kamphuis ( EQAVETNL) got a first print of the guide and tools.
The meeting was an initiative of the Ministry of Education (OCW), and organised by the National reference point EQAVET, and will get a followup through a national publication.
