Find new solution
Research focuses on assessing the procedure towards “1800 hours for VPL” aimed at teachers in vocational schools or professional colleges in French-speaking Switzerland, with a possible option extending it to all SFIVET regional offices.

The task is to assess the procedure’s internal consistency, adequacy and relevance to targeted objectives.


Two stages: analysis of prescribed work and analysis of actual work.

  1. Study of the procedure’s structure based on a documentary survey of relevant official texts and standards.
  2. Study of the actual work performed by the actors in the procedure: individual and collective interviews of the stakeholders, candidates, support staff, experts and persons in charge of the procedure.
