Based on several work carried out before by researchers and education providers the status of graduate tracking as important measure for quality education and a better connection between labour markets and related education is rising. The Erasmus+ project OnTrack (“Tracking Learning and Career Paths of VET graduates, to improve quality of VET provision”) is an important puzzlestone to this development, which – at European level – is cumulating in the recent capacity building activities supported by DG EMPL and carried out from a project group lead by Ecorys (including 3s as partner of the OnTrack project). The overall objective of these activities is to support the European Commission’s effort in designing, coordinating, implementing, monitoring and helping the EU and European Economic Area countries to build their capacities to prepare the ground for a European graduate tracking mechanism in higher education (see also EAC-2020-0312).
On Monday 16 November, IDEC organized a workshop for VET organisations, and presented the methodological guide for the establishment of a graduates tracking system. The step by step methodology was presented to participants.
Despite the measures taken due to the coronavirus, the ON TRACK project continues.

In this second webinar of On Track project, we will present the methodology and tools for tracking VET graduates.
The second meeting took place the 9th and 10th of May 2019 in Sofia, Bulgaria. We compared the tracking context of each country and set the necessary steps to create the Tracking system!
The ON TRACK project has been promoted in Haló TU which is a quarterly magazine published by the Technical University of Košice. It informs students, academics but also the general public about what is happening at the university, news, interesting things from the world of technology and research. It introduces life at university, informs about the success of faculties or departments, opportunities for employment in practice, but also about social events.
