The cover of the WorkQual Manual.

The major product of the WorkQual Project is the WorkQual Manual.

This manual describes a system of quality processes to use with workplacements. These processes can be incorporated into the quality management systems of vocational colleges or other training providers working with employers to embed a period of work experience or placement.

In addition to the manual in different languages we also publish other documents created in the project such as reports on different phases of the project work. See below.

The Manual includes examples of some of the additional sheets and documents needed when a school or a VET system will implement the processes suggested in the manual. Some additional examples are listed below. The Manual only suggests the sheets and documents to use but does not supply these as they will be different for different countries and different sectors or programs.
