In front of the overall project aim of the WBL-Q project which is the significant improvement of quality in work based learning processes in businesses and companies, the project
partnership has defined three subaims which are forming the basis for the expected project results:
1) Implementation of an investigation research to identify relevant and feasible quality criteria reflecting the broad variety of work based learning (large and smaller companies,
production and service/public sector, degrees of maturity of the WBL systems etc.).
2) Development of a web based self evaluation tool for quality in work based learning in the own company / business / institution. The self evaluation tool should allow the WBL
responsible staff to assess the own WBL processes and their quality. At the same time the tool allows to compare the own scores and values against valid benchmarks (according to
size, target sector, maturity level etc.) as well as the deduction of improvement potentials. Moreover the tool provides the user with concrete suggestions for improvement, the next
steps to do as well as information about who will be able to support and help the organisation during this process. In addition to this a stresstest-function should be added to check how future prove the own WBL system is against some future trends in VET (e.g. demographic developments, digitalisation trends etc.).
3) Development of a handbook for WBL responsible e persons in companies on how to implement and operate the web based self evaluation tool and channel feedback results into
concrete (EQAVET based) improvement actions.
