The online event provided an opportunity for ideas-sharing between educational and industry experts from the European Union.

The peer-learning platform brings together decision-makers from national authorities, relevant stakeholders and experts to support them in acquiring and developing an integral understanding of graduate and employment data and the management of VET systems in their respective countries. In this context, peer learning provides the national delegates with the opportunity:

  • to learn from the approaches that other countries adopt when carrying out data analysis of VET systems and monitoring graduates
  • to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches to help the national delegates to identify what will work well in their particular national context
  • to gain a clearer understanding of the value of graduate and employment data and to learn how it can effectively support their national VET systems.
