European Peer Review Manual
European Peer Review Manual for vocational education & training
The European Peer Review Manual describes a European standard procedure for conducting Peer Reviews in vocational education and training.
It was developed in the Leonardo da Vinci project "Peer Review in initial VET" by a team of experts from seven Europan countries. It has since been tested in 25 transnational Peer Reviews involving 8 European countries. On the basis of the evaluation of the pilotphase, the Manual was adapted. The final version has been available since June 2007.
The European Peer Review Manual provides practical guidelines for institutions of vocational education and training who want to implement Peer Review as an instrument for quality assurance and quality development.
It is complemented by a Tool-box, which comprises forms, checklists and additional information and recommendations.
The Manual can also be used - with some adaptations concerning the quality areas and the peers - in other contexts. It has since been transferred i.e. to guidance and counselling.
The European Peer Review Manual for (initial) VET is available in electronic form. If you are interested in a hard copy of the Manual please contact us at info(at)peer-review-network.eu.
