Vocational Education and Training Centres

The Vocational Education and Training Centres (CQEP) are coordinated by an official designated by the CQEP organising body, being responsible for its institutional representation, as well as ensuring its proper operation in terms of educational, organizational and financial management.

The coordinator should possess higher education qualifications, demonstrate knowledge regarding education and training provision and have verified professional experience in managing this provision, IEFP centres (Employment and Vocational Training Institute), training bodies or, when applicable, in the area of disability and rehabilitation.

However, the CQEP (Vocational Education and Training Centre) coordinator cannot hold this position as well as that of the director/head of a school cluster or non-grouped school, director of a directly or partially managed centre of the IEFP network, director or legal representative of the organising body.

As part of the strategic plan, it is the responsibility of CQEP coordinator to:

  • Promote partnerships with bodies that are important in the field of qualification and employment, as well as ensure its permanent activity and monitoring, in order to maximize the relevance, effectiveness and social utility of services provided by the CQEP;
  • Foster partnerships with employers, in order to promote lifelong learning, including the improvement, specialisation and retraining of its employees, as well as organising internship proposals and training opportunities in a work context;
  • Coordinate the strategic intervention plan and draw up the activity report, in conjunction with partner organizations and with other team members;
  • Collect, treat and systematically disseminate information regarding businesses, employment and qualification opportunities for young people and adults;
  • Make all relevant information available and collaborate with ANQEP in relation to the qualification and supervision network and monitoring of respective provision.

In operational terms, the coordinator is also responsible for:

  • Managing the team and developing its potential in order to ensure that the CQEP complies with its duties, encouraging innovation, quality and services geared towards users and to the employment market;
  • Implementing systematic self-assessment mechanisms able to assess the quality of interventions and user satisfaction;
  • Making the information necessary for the supervision, monitoring and external evaluation of the activity available, according to ANQEP guidelines;
  • Adopting measures that enhance CQEP services, taking into account the results of self-assessment and external review processes;
  • Ensuring the reliability of the information recorded in SIGO - Integrated Information System and Management of Educational and Training Provision;
  • Ensuring effective operation that ensures the necessary support for young people and adults with disabilities during their certification process.


Adult Education and Training Courses

All of these bodies boast their own governing bodies.

To attend an AET course, the student enters into a training contract with the training body, in which the course attendance conditions must be clearly defined. The representative of the training body is responsible for organising and managing the AET courses, taking care of all logistical, technical and administrative procedures that are the responsibility of those bodies, including those required by SIGO.
