These are exciting times for TRACKTION project. During the next three weeks, we will collect destinations’ data from three hundred VET graduates at Alfa Collegue (NL), Cometa Formazione (IT) and PKHK (EE). Students taking part in the first pilot will be surveyed 6 and 18 months after graduation.
This survey will allow graduates to reflect on the value their studies have played in theircurrent activities, how this compares to their original plans and how they’re using skills they have picked up whilst in education. It willl allow us to gather a far more accurate picture of how their circumstances may have changed in the time since they have graduated, as they´re moving further into the labour market. We also want to understand the non-traditional routes that graduates are taking following education. Employment isn’t the only successful outcome: we want to know what they do, and really understand what they see as fulfilling. Our post-graduation online survey is available in five languages, Dutch, English, Estonian, Italian and Spanish.
The outcome is expected to improve graduate tracking processes and as a result, positively impact quality assurance systems in participant schools, particularly in connection with EQAVET indicators 5 and 6. This enriched dataset may serve as basis for future planning enabling VET institutions to flexibly adapt to the rapidly changing market conditions.
Stay tuned for more details!
