This MoU also provides the cooperation framework, establishes a communication channel and determining specific working arrangements between the Signatory Parties, who share a common vision and willingness to improve VET Providersโ€™ Uses of Graduate Tracking feedback โ€“ based on the principles of protection of personal data, common interest, reciprocity and complementarity.ย 

The MoU was created in the framework of the Erasmus+ Project โ€œInTheLoop4VETโ€ which aims at Improving VET Providersโ€™ Uses of Graduate Tracking feedback, as an answer to VET providersโ€™ need to strengthen their capacities for independent self-adaptation (effectively exploiting advantages of flexibility, local market intelligence, proximity to communities), through efficient graduate data handling and processing, within processes of alignment with labour and other market needs.

While the main goal of the โ€œInTheLoop4VET MoUโ€ is to ensure VET providers to adhere to the Personal Data Protection framework when using the interactive reporting repository of the project, this MoU is also meant to support and spread the use of Graduate Tracking Feedback loop mechanisms for monitoring and improving the efficiency of vocational education and training (VET) provision, by establishing an EU-wide strategic partnership, which could bring together key actors and stakeholders involved in formal and non-formal education and training provision: from VET providers to Higher Education institutions; from policy makers and public authorities to employersโ€™ and workersโ€™ associations; from apprentices and students to academic, scientific and technical researchers.

The signatory parties unite in pursuing the following main objectives:

  • Supporting regional, national and European initiatives aimed at the development and use of Graduate Tracking Feedback tools and mechanisms.
  • Promoting the integration of Graduate Tracking Feedback methods and tools in their own premises as well with their collaborators network.

In this way, the InTheLoop4VET MoU intends to contribute also to the principles and objectives defined at European level.

In view of nurturing their cooperation, the signatory parties agree to respect the GDPR regulations while engaging, within their capacities and available resources, in joint areas that encompass, but not limited to, the following (collaboration) activities:

  • Contribution to the development of the repository of VET provision adaptation results. The database will be available for use by any registered stakeholder who will thus have access to data reflecting the outcomes (e.g. proposed or implemented changes) of VET providers’ self-assessment through tracking and feedback loop mechanisms.
  • Widespread dissemination of the Graduate Tracking feedback digital tool of InTheLoop4VET with VET Providers to help them improve the tracking of VET graduatesโ€™ employment is an important indicator of financing educational institutions, assessing the quality of training in individual institutions, and forecasting the sectors and areas of education that will be in demand in the future.
  • Active participation in seminars, conferences and events addressing topics such as VET graduatesโ€™ employment and the methods / tools to track efficiently those valuable data.
  • Facilitating meetings and matchmaking among signatory parties, to explore possibilities for joint research, actions and projects in the field.
  • Mutual exchange of information and knowledge between signatory parties on public and private initiatives aimed at increasing the efficient use of Graduate Tracking Feedback tools and mechanisms.
  • Vocal advocacy vis-ร -vis policy makers to increase and improve the use of such methods / tools.
  • Raising awareness on the societal and economic benefits emanating from the active use of Graduate Tracking Feedback tools and mechanisms.
