Reference company system
Company surveys are an important instrument for discovering the assessment of practitioners with regard to issues within the field of initial and continuing vocational education and training. In order to avoid delays and the high costs that are incurred by repeatedly having to identify a new representative selection of companies, BIBB has introduced a reference company system.
This permits rapid and reliable analyses to be conducted on current topics relating to company-based training. Around 1,400 companies are currently surveyed once or twice a year on the latest issues affecting work-based VET. The results of these questionnaires are collated in reference company data, which is made available to the companies free of charge and on a regular basis as a consideration for their participation
