What is a Peer Review?A Peer Review is a form of external assessment that combines internal assessment with external evaluation done by Peers. i.e. “persons of equal standing”, who visit the reviewed institution during the evaluation process.Peer Review builds upon the professional expertise and knowledge of peers and encourages a learning process between peers and the reviewed institution. The European Peer Review InitiativeThe project EuroPeerGuid-RVC is based on the results of the four previous projects: “Peer Review in initial VET”, “Peer Review Extended”, “Peer Review Extended II” and “EuroPeerGuid”. In these projects, the European Peer Review methodology – defined in the “European Peer Review Manual for VET” – was developed and tested within vocational education and training (VET) and guidance and counseling.EuroPeerGuid-RVC ContextThe EuroPeerGuid-RVC project gathers 4 European countries – Austria, France, Holland and Portugal. Several countries have Recognition, Validation and Certification of Competencies RVC in their public systems, but don’t use Peer Review as a quality assurance methodology. This project responds to the priorities of the Leonardo Call for 2013 which aims to ”develop strategies for lifelong learning and mobility and to encourage cooperation between the worlds of education, training and work”.
