  • The VETAS online portal
    The VETAS portal provides access to introductory sector-specific information about different national education systems, innovative approaches applied within and/or related to VET in the automotive sector, European resources on education and training in the automotive sector, expert opinions and a discussion forum for VET practitioners from the automotive sector.

  • Summarising brochure of VETAS project results
    This brochures summarises the results of the VETAS research activities and therefore enables a first view into the work done during the project period. More elaborated information is available in the reports and papers below.

  • Synthesis report on the situation of training and education in the automotive sector and its domains, national developments and the application of instruments and European Policy Recommendations
    This synthesis report and the related policy recommendations have been developed in the framework of WP5 within the VETAS project. The synthesis report reviews and discusses the VETAS projects findings with regard to European policy and the implementation of European instruments such as the EQF in the branch. It proposes a model how this could be faciliated in future. It has been drafted by the VETAS partners Politecnico di Torino (IT) and DEKRA (DE).

  • Suggestions for Organisation Development of the VETAS network
    Network sustainability and further development after the end of a project such as VETAS are of major importance for the success and the evaluation of such project that aims to lay grounds for an ongoing network and can therefore not be considered as finalised after the end of the project duration. This paper provides information on how the network is planned to be maintained and further developed in the coming years in order to reach sustainability and real exploitation of the projects results at a long run.
    For this purpose the paper describes VETAS’ starting point and background, the basic features of the network and its potential for further development and finally concrete plans for the coming years from the current status providing the basis of the network to the establishment of a VETAS association that will build the legal framework for the VETAS network in future. It should considered together with the VETAS synthesis report and policy recommendatios. It has been drafted by the VETAS coordinator DEKRA (DE).

  • Evaluation and monitoring report on education and training in the automotive sector
    The evaluation and monitoring report has been developed based on the innovative approaches that have been identified by the VETAS consortium. Full descriptions of the approaches are available at The report summarises the innovative approaches and draws conclusions regarding emerging trends at a practical level of vocational education and training in the automotive sector. It has been compiled by the VETAS partners CPV (IT) and DEKRA (DE).

  • Assessment of discussions with automotive stakeholders

These last encompass: 1) (legal) procedures of setting up publicly recognised occupational profiles; 2) tools used to derive requirements for training and education moving from the analysis of work processes; 3) approaches to design curricula according to these needs, and models for human resources development. In other words, the purpose is to identify available tools for the identification of learning requirements related to work processes. It has been compiled by the VETAS project partner Politecnico di Torino (IT).

  • Methods of setting up occupational profiles and designing qualification processes in the automotive sector
