Erasmus+ Project

Welcome to the homepage of the Erasmus+ Project PAGOSTE!

The Erasmus+ project "New mechanisms of partnership-based governance and standardization of vocational teacher education in Ukraine" (PAGOSTE) deals with governance in vocational teacher education (VTE) in Ukraine. The professionalization of teachers working in the field of vocational education and training (VET) is considered to be more complex than in the general education system as here the relevance of teachers’ competences not only has an impact on learners (vocational students), but also on the quality of VET as such and its functionality for the employment sector. An overarching quality criterion is to ensure that expectations of vocational schools and the motivations and competences of future teachers can be aligned.

The project aims at developing and piloting governance structures between the Ukrainian partner HEIs and regional VET schools. The focus is on overcoming the theory-practice gap between university education and teaching requirement in VET, and on setting up governance in a new, i.e. partnership-based manner between relevant institutions in VTE
