General Activities


The partnership started with carrying out a research regarding the different national school-to-work systems and the various work-based learning approaches in the partner countries. The research was done in the months October to December 2015 and lead to an overview summarizing the findings. The report was finished by February 2016 and is available for download at the outcome section.


Following, the partnership elaborated an appropriate questionnaire to be used in the Online Survey on national transition settings. The aim was to receive a feedback regarding the satisfaction on the specific national system and the work-based training approach. The survey was addressed to the main stakeholder groups affected by WBT, namely teachers, trainers and students. The questionnaire was available in all partner languages and accessible via the project website.


The Online Survey finally was carried out in the months May till September 2016 in all nine participating partner countries. 562 questionnaires were collected in total, generally 20 questionnaires per target group per country.


Next steps was the evaluation of the extensive data collected in the survey. The findings were documented and in an informative Report on Findings including specific Country Reports.
