The first international peer review successfully held in Croatia

The first international peer review in VET in Croatia was held in the Secondary school Matija Antun Reljković in the city of Slavonski Brod from 14th May until 16th of May 2018.

Unlike the classic evaluation methods in Croatia that cover all quality areas, the peer review is only carried out in those quality areas chosen by the host school. This activity of peer review was organized by the Agency for Vocational Education and Adult Education within the EQAVET NRP project, as an joint activity that, besides in Croatia, is also held in Finland, Austria and Slovenia.
