Updating the 2013 Manual for VET Providers
“Implementation of Quality Assurance in Vocational Education & Training (VET) Institutions”
The Malta Further and Higher Education Authority is updating the 2013 Manual for VET Providers.
In 2022, the Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) have launched the updating of the Manual for VET Providers “Implementation of Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (VET) Institutions” (hereinafter referred to as Manual) as part of the National VET Team Annual activity planning co-funded by Erasmus+ Programme project.
The Manual was developed in 2013 as the result of the Leonardo Da Vinci project “EQAVET Malta – Quality Assurance tool for Vocational Education and Training”. The document provides guidelines with the intention of taking VET providers through the process of reviewing their existing internal quality assurance system and is not prescriptive in any way.
In September an online survey was conducted among Malta VET providers with the aim to collect information on their experience in the implementation and practical use of the 2013 version of the Manual, the impact of the Manual and the EQAVET Framework on their internal quality assurance systems and also on their views on the changes that the updated version of the Manual should reflect.
Data and analysis of the survey results were used to inform the 2 workshops organised as part of the professional consultation process on updating the Manual with the participation of MFHEA, Malta VET providers and the external international experts as well as the updating the content and drafting the new version of the Manual.
As such, members of the public are invited to submit their feedback through this survey by not later than Thursday 24th November 2022.

The Malta Further and Higher Education Authority collects information which is necessary for it to perform its intended functions and is set to fully comply with the Data Protection Principles as set out in the Data Protection Legislation.
