DeSqual Logo websiteOn October 23 and 24 the partners in project DeSqual (Development of Sustainable Quality assurance in VET) met for the kick-off of their new project.

This project is a collaboration of 4 Quality assurance expert organisations and 10 social service providers / VET providers for people with disabilities who will pilot a new developed training program for achieving sustainable quality assurance. With an EQUASS quality assurance certificate as a start partners will develop a training program that focusses on individual quality behavior and quality awareness of professionals and quality culture in the organisation. In this way project DeSqual will contribute to the sustainable implementation of EQAVET requirements in their quality system.
