The Austrian Reference Point for Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (ARQA-VET) has been established at the OeAD. ARQA-VET has three central tasks:

  • As a network node in the EU network EQAVET we act as a link and communication interface to the European Union and thus enhance quality in vocational education and training on the European level.
  • As a national expertise centre we provide information and cross-link the Austrian stakeholders, e.g. by means of the annual quality network conference.
  • As a service and support provider we support the Department of Vocational Education and Training and Adult Education of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy in the implementation and further development of the Quality Initiative Vocational Education and Training (QIBB).
