Work-based learning programmes in the tertiary education and training sector - an international comparative analysis of models and functions (H-VET)

 

This project was led by BIBB, the German Federal Institute of Vocational Education and Training, in conjunction with IBW, the Austrian equivalent. 

It ran between 2014 and 2017, and examined how different European countries’ education systems were incorporating work-based learning into higher education and professional training.  Six countries’ systems were examined:  Austria, England, France, Ireland, Norway and Poland.
