  • ECVET seminar



Ljubljana, Grand Hotel Union, 25. October 2013

Slovene National Agency for LifelongLearning Programme is planning to hold a conference titled: »COOPERATION BETWEEN HEI AND BUSINESSES – WHY DO WE NEED TO COOPERATE?”. The Conference will be held in Ljubljana on October 25th 2013.

The event will bring together academics, policy makers and international experts to share experiences and good practices in the initiatives and interventions on how can Higher Education institutions develop academic programs that will give students the knowledge and skills that today’s job market demands and what can they offer them to support their preparation for the future life. Existing data and surveys show that there is a need for action by universities, employers, students and government to address both the reality and perception of the skills deficit in our graduates. In this respect we must improve the dialogue between the Education sector and the “market-place” through cooperation between Higher Education and business in order to shape the curricula and skills required for success.

The conference will be of benefit to all Higher Educational academic and professional staff (not only those directly involved in students’ career development processes), as well as policy makers and other stakeholders.

European guidelines regarding quality assurance in VET and AE have been in the plenary presented by representatives of the European Commission, namely by Sophie Weisswange and Maike Koops. The good practice of quality assurance in adult education was presented by Ruth Jermann who presented the structure which is used in Switzerland (eduQua). A view of quality assurance in vocational education and training from a national perspective of Austria was presented by Jürgen Horchinegg.

110 participants from 19 countries discussed the issues in depth in the thematic workshops dedicated to quality culture, quality cycle and quality assurance in the formal and the informal non-formal education and training. Several projects were presented as best practices in every workshop. Projects have been selected by a group of external assessors led by Maria Gutknecht Gmeiner in the beginning of the QALLL network activities. The evaluators reviewed 80 nominated projects from different countries and of these 42 were selected as examples of good practice.

During the conference so-called Project Market has been organised where projects had presented their materials. In this way the opportunity for networking was given and many of the participants made valuable contact.
