VARE Project - Home

Welcome To the Website of the VARE Project!

The project "Vocational Assessor Requirements in Europe" (VARE) aims to identify the requirements for assessment and assessors in vocational training programmes across the European Union to support the development of partnership working for the purposes of mobility in VET.

On this site, you will find the Catalogue of Assessor Requirements, detailing the requirements to be an assessor of vocational qualifications across the EU.

There is also a comparison tool to compare basic “headline” information on requirements for three countries at a time. This comparison tool is divided into the requirements for assessors in work-based learning settings and the requirements in school-based learning settings. Furthermore, there are several case studies of good practices in Europe available.

The VARE project is funded via the Erasmus+ Programme.
The project is led by UK NARIC, in partnership with:

3s research laboratory, Austria

Cooperation Fund Foundation, Poland

Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Vocational Education and Training (CPI), Slovenia

VTCT, UK
