EduPlan is a self-evaluation instrument based on the Irish project SPEAK and mainly foreseen for quality assurance and evaluation of measurements taken in vocational education- and training centres. It supports quality in planning and decision-making, ensures the transfer of educational measurements and initiatives, and leads to quantifiable results. EduPlan can be used as planning tool for quality control in vocational education and training centres.
It supports quality in planning- and decisionmaking-processes, ensures the transfer of educational measurements and –initiatives, and leads to quantifiable results. The intention is to offer EduPlan in a broad range of use within the field of education and further education in all kinds of sectors of the vocational education providers. Through the ongoing application of EduPlan it becomes a basic planning tool for quality control. Quintessentially EduPlan leads to an increasing cooperation amongst educational providers.
Following new lifelong learning policies through the past years there’s a rapid growing of VET networks throughout Europe, with a strong tendency to interlocking educational activities across organisations and sectors. Apparently this shift towards multilateral and transversal cooperation in VET calls for new and innovative approaches to joint decision making, shared planning, coordinated implementation and quality control of educational provision.
