In order to develop a strategy for international cooperation in vocational education and training, the European Commission has commissioned an academic study, the results of which are now available. In this, GOVET is acknowledged positively as an example of successful collaboration.
The significance of vocational education and training is increasing world wide due to globalisation and the shortage of specialist skills. The European Union has recognised this in various communiqués. Up to now, the focus of European education and training policy has been on the higher education sector. The Commission, therefore, has no distinct profile in the area of collaboration in vocational education and training.
In order to answer the question as to whether and to what extent the EU should be working in the area of international cooperation in vocational education and training, the European Commission has commissioned the study "Building knowledge on international cooperation in VET" from a group of academic institutes.
The authors of the investigation, which include Danish Technological Institute, ICF International, 3s and Technopolis have compiled dossiers on 32 countries and five dossiers about international organisations.
They have also written seven case studies about various key stakeholders, including GOVET, in order to gain an understanding of the success factors in the internationalisation of vocational education and training.
The aim here was to highlight and compare the approaches of EU countries, the EFTA states of Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Lichtenstein as well as Australia. The authors of the study also incorporated strategies from the five international organisations OECD, UNESCO, ILO, the World Bank and ASEM.
The report cites GOVET at various points and praises the measures taken by the German government to harmonize cooperation in vocational education and training. In particular, the quality of the central office is emphasized which allows economic collaboration and support in a wider context via networking in the area of cooperation in vocational education and training.
