Launch of the BESTVET Process Map and Guide

Engineers Ireland has partnered with five leading VET Training centres from across Europe in a unique LLP project (County Louth Education and Training Board, INOVINTER, CECE , Euroform RFS and Norton Radstock College), to create a workable guide for the transfer of quality development systems from Higher Education to VET centres and staff across Europe.

The LLP project equipped each partner with the tools to simultaneously implement a mentoring system, a system of learning contracts and an on-line learning management system into their respective institutions. The project has had a very positive effect on each partner institution. However, how could we ensure that this knowledge could be transferred to other VET institutions looking to implement the BESTVET Total Development System into their institution?

The answer to this question lay in the creation of the BESTVET ‘Process Map and Guide’. This document, used in tandem with the supporting documentation, has been designed to act as a guide for VET institutions looking to implement these three best practices into their institutions.

For full information on this Process Map and Guide please visit the specially dedicated section of the BESTVET website: ‘Process Map and Guide’

For guidance on how to use the Process Map and Guide or any queries relating to the project, contact the project coordinator: Simon Purdue, Engineers Ireland: spurdue@engineersireland.ie

NOTE: Marny Thompson from Norton Radstock College will be attending the EfVET Annual Conference 2014 in Porto and will be distributing a printed English version of the ‘Process Map and Guide’ if you would like a copy.
