QUALITY IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING (VET) is about VET being fit for purpose, and being governed, delivered, assessed and funded accordingly. The best way to foster Quality in VET is to set standards that need to be followed.
Private sector involvement in VET is an essential ingredient in a VET system. The willingness of a government to share responsibility in all aspects of the VET system development is a pre-condition for the involvement of the private sector.
However, VET is not the private sector’s core business; their involvement must be responsive to their needs and operations, be planned and efficiently organized.
Inclusive vocational education and training (VET) refers to an education and training system which takes into account the learning and educational support needs of all marginalised and vulnerable young people; street children, girls and women, refugees, ethnic minority groups, youth from economically poor families, children from nomadic and pastoralist families, youth living with HIV/AIDS and children with disabilities.
