Large Scale Assessment for Vocational Education and Training

Concept for an international Large-Scale Assessment for Vocational Education and Training (VET-LSA)


VET-LSA is a concept for an international comparative study of young adults competencies developed in vocational education and training. The purpose of VET-LSA is to investigate the ways in which young adults are prepared for the world of work in different vocational tracks in Europe. The aim of the survey is to provide insights into the strengths and weaknesses of VET-programmes in different occupational fields as an opportunity for different countries to learn from each other. VET-LSA will assess the level and distribution of young adults` vocational competencies in a coherent and consistent way in selected European countries.



VET-LSA is initiated by the Sociological Research Institute (SOFI) and the Institute of Business and Human Resource Education
