Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a strategic matter and EC gives significant importance to vocational education and its curriculum. Vocational Education systems have being shaped by European countries with the aims such as especially joining work life of qualified persons who are needed by labor market and decreasing unemployment. Several countries in Europe has identified approaches for VET in order to shape their own vocational education policy. However, even though EU countries are trying to adapt to common strategy, local factors may cause to stay out of determined standards. Level of industrialization and quality of workforce are not same throughout Europe. Standardization has been aimed by EQAVET programme, strategic partnerships through Erasmus + programme will supply significant contributions to the EQAVET programme. NecVET project has been developed for setting up a network between vocational education institutions and enterprises to bring together all local actors in each participant countries. Expectations of labour market and possibilities of vocational education institutions will be compared and prepared national situation reports. By this way, objectives we planned are to strengthen connections between VET institutions and enterprises, to provide effective practice training possibilities for VET students and to educate these student to be more qualified and competitive. Several project activities will be carried out to reach these objectives. In principle, joining of all local and regional actors in the field of the adaptation of contents and curriculum of vocational education to labor market has internalized and aimed for 2020. On the other hand, to support EQAVET programme through setting up direct links with labor market and enterprises representatives that policy makers has not conferred with them on the matter sufficiently so far, preparing needs analysis and comparing its results with educational policies of VET institutions are focus point of NecVET project. Outputs of NecVET project will be spread out to VET institutions at local and regional level via effective dissemination tools. Work programme has been defined to participant institutions according to their capabilities and qualifications. Experiences and outputs has got open source essence for all European actors who is related with vocational education.
