Why this focus on evaluation tools 

Evaluation is mandatory for all EU projects, including those in the VET field. Increased emphasis on project evaluation has improved the overall quality of EU funded VET projects but has generated a new set of problems.

Evaluation and capitalisation tools are not yet available which

- are VET-specific;

- can measure empowerment and development;

- are capable of effectively capitalising on results in a policy context; and

- are flexible enough to continuously feed learning from results back into programme design.

The eval4 project has worked to address these key challenges.
