VET-LSA is a concept for an international comparative study of young adults competencies developed in vocational education and training. The purpose of VET-LSA is to investigate the ways in which young adults are prepared for the world of work in different vocational tracks in Europe. The aim of the survey is to provide insights into the strengths and weaknesses of VET-programmes in different occupational fields as an opportunity for different countries to learn from each other. VET-LSA will assess the level and distribution of young adults` vocational competencies in a coherent and consistent way in selected European countries.For an international Large Scale Assessment of Vocational Education and Training (VET-LSA), a Feasibility Study with experts from all participating countries needs to be developed to investigate whether a comparison in selected vocational areas is feasible and to agree on a basis for comparison. Participating countries are: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland


Qualitative design: national workshops with experts and stakeholders, expert rating, comparative analysis (descriptive and nonparametric statistical methods).


The aim of the study was to find out whether there is a common basis for comparison in selected vocational areas in all participating countries. The comparative analysis of expert ratings and discussions in national workshops shows that there are high concordances of ratings between countries. However, the degree of coverage varies depending on the vocational area.
