This report on European Patterns of Successful Practice in Vocational Education and Training (VET) was developed as a result of a coherent and comprehensive analysis of 28 VET practices, examined in the course of the Vocational Education and Training: Policy and Practice in the field of Special Needs Education (VET) project.
The report identifies similarities and differences in successful VET examples and provides recommendations to improve the performance of countries’ VET systems in particular areas. This report is complemented by a document that details the methodology employed in the project for analysing the study visit outcomes and for setting up the VET system model, also available from the VET project web area.
A further output of this project is the methodology employed in the project for analysing the study visit outcomes and for setting up a VET system model. While the report focuses on the key outcomes and recommendations, this paper is concerned with the methodology applied to identify patterns in complex settings such as VET, and with the implications of this approach for policy-makers and practitioners.
