The aim of this Evaluation was to provide an independent assessment of the relevance, effectiveness, impact, sustainability, added value and efficiency of ETF’s activities in the area of Vocational Education and Training (VET) governance. The Evaluation covered the period from 2012 to late 2016 when data collection for the Evaluation started. It was based on the analysis of data collected through desk research, in-depth interviews, and a survey of VET governance stakeholders across ETF’s Partner Countries.
The desk research included external policy documents, ETF’s monitoring and planning reports, previous evaluations and audit reports. Interviews (41 in total) were carried out with ETF staff members, representatives of the European Commission and stakeholders from three selected ETF PCs (Serbia, Ukraine, and Tunisia). The latter included representatives of the EU Delegations active in these countries, employers, trade unions, national governmental institutions and bodies, vocational education and training (VET) providers, NGOs and research organisations. The survey was carried out in three languages (English, French and Russian) and gathered the opinions of 210 respondents across all ETF’s partner countries.
