Comissão Europeia, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion


The main objective of project INVOLVE is to analyse and foster social partners' integration in the governance of dual VET in four countries that are attempting to develop, strengthen or improve dual Vocational Education and Training (VET) systems (Spain, Greece, Portugal and Poland). Four research institutes (one per country analysed) will focus on investigating how peak level cross-sectoral social partners, sectoral and regional social partners and managers and employees’ representatives at the company level are addressing the challenge of implementing dual VET. Rigorous research methods will be adopted at the national level, namely desk research, qualitative fieldwork and participatory scenario methodology, in order to identify potential scenarios of more integrative governance structures of dual VET on the basis of discussion of project research results with social partners and relevant stakeholders at the national level. Comparative analysis and policy recommendations will be widely disseminated.
