4 Entrepreneurial Skills Pass 1. INTRODUCTION This quality assurance plan supports the quality and evaluation activities in ESP. It forms part of Work Package 4: Quality Assurance. PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT QUALITY ASSURANCE PLAN The Project Quality Assurance Plan documents the necessary information required to effectively manage project quality from project planning to delivery. The purpose of the quality assurance plan is to ensure that project outputs meet quality expectations. The quality assurance plan will define the monitoring and evaluation methodology that will be used to assess the project (activities and outcomes) as well as the quality of the outputs. Moreover, the plan will outline the quality metrics each consortium member has to comply with. The intended audience and users of the Project Quality Assurance Plan is the project manager, project consortium, the steering committee, EACEA and the external evaluator. The plan will be put in place to make sure that the project is EFFECTIVE (doing the right things, which means achieving the goals set out and deliver products that meet the requirements) and EFFICIENT (doing things right that is to plan and monitor the project progress to have a sort of early warning system to detect issues that could become serious if left unattended). The quality assurance plan is needed to be able to answer the following questions: Is the project doing what was planned to do? If not, why not? What do users/members/beneficiaries think about the work? Is the project achieving what has been intended? 2. PROJECT QUALITY ASSURANCE OVERVIEW PROJECT SCOPE ESP is focused on vocational schools (VET) and its main goals are: 1) to provide a certification package able to improve students job prospects and act as more comprehensive proof of the skills and competences employers are looking for; 2) to train and certify more teachers in vocational schools to use the tools that lead to the certification; 3) engage and involve business and industry by having them participate in entrepreneurship education activities in schools as well as endorse the certificate by offering further opportunities for successful candidates. 4) to generate strong local stakeholder support and drive more constructive collaboration between key actors in the entrepreneurship education ecosystem. OVERALL PROJECT OBJECTIVES AND CORRESPONDING QUALITY METRICS In the long term, the project will work to improve young people s competitive advantage on the labour market (mitigate unemployment; increase entrepreneurial potential). This long term impact Page 4 of 24

8 H&K exploitation (WP6) Entrepreneurial Skills Pass Responsible of results exploitation (WP6) QUALITY ASSURANCE RESPONSIBILITIES OF PROJECT PARTNERS The QA management workflow is based on specific tools and methodologies, including a QA plan and strategies for the evaluation and validation of all deliverables. The project has a designated quality manager (QM), which is a representative of FFE-YE, and funds are budgeted for the subcontracting of an external evaluator. However, all project partners and associated partners will contribute to the continuous process of quality monitoring and assurance within the consortium, and will provide on-going feedback for the quality manager and evaluator. Table 3 provides an overview of the key actors and their responsibilities in relation to quality assurance. Table 3: Quality assurance responsibilities Name Role Quality Responsibility FFE-YE Administrative Project Manager Lead on the quality assurance work package Appoint quality manager Quality manager Coordinate the evaluation quality assurance plan collecting reports and ensuring that the consortium will use the set of quality metrics defined Inform the project partners about the timing of data collection for monitoring and evaluation Develop financial and reporting guidelines in correlation with the general EACEA guidelines for LLP Ensure the financial targets are in line with projections JA-YE Content coordinator Monitor the activities implementation and the contents quality Steering Committee Local project partners Overall steering of project Project implementors Approve the quality assurance plan Implement the project assessment Ensure that all stakeholders involved will fill the assessment forms Provide the lead partners with all materials Ensure that the quality metrics are met Report on the impact the project had on students, teachers and business volunteers Sannie Fisker External evaluator Design the ESP quality assurance plan Support midterm evaluation and monitoring after Page 8 of 24

9 Entrepreneurial Skills Pass each school term Contribute to Interim report Draft final evaluation report ROLE OF THE QUALITY MANAGER AND EXTERNAL EVALUATOR FFE-YE is responsible for the nomination of a quality manager (QM). The QM is responsible for the administration and implementation of the Quality Assurance Plan, and has the authority to identify problems identified during monitoring activities and to initiate actions, resulting in complete solutions to them. All problems are raised within steering consortium meetings, and the minutes should also record the agreed solution and the time bound action to be taken. There is a requirement to provide evidence that the problem has been solved. The QM will attend all management and consortium meetings, networking and dissemination events at European level (i.e. not all national events). During in-between and following these, s/he will feedback observations and suggestions to the project management team in order to assist the efficiency of the processes which drive the project. The QM will also be in charge of collecting reports from project partners and deliver all relevant information and data to the external evaluator. The external evaluation is central to assure that all the activities related to the project are carried out according to the project scope and objectives. To guarantee independence and transparency, an external evaluator will undertake the external evaluation. The external evaluator (EE) will contribute to the interim report and produce a final evaluation report as per EU requirement with a focus on the key elements of the Quality European Project (Relevance, Efficiency, Effectiveness, Impact and Sustainability). The final report will comprise analyses of questionnaires and assessment forms as well as face-to-face interviews with teachers and business volunteers as supplied by the project partners. The final evaluation will assess the project as a whole and will analyse the future plans and sustainability of the project. The EE will also support the school term evaluations and present findings at project consortium meeting(s). 3. QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRESS AND OUTCOME/OUTPUT The quality of ESP will be monitored throughout the project through various means of pre-defined methods for ensuring quality as well as a system of evaluation. Quality will be assured on two dimensions monitoring of project progress and evaluation of project outcome/output. In terms of progress, various monitoring and review activities will be conducted to continuously make sure that the project is on track and steps can be taken in case amendments are needed. The quality criteria are related to whether the project is effective and well-managed. Quality assurance in relation to outcome/output will evaluate project results against overall objectives and expected impact. The focus will be on the key elements of the Quality European Project (Relevance, Efficiency, Effectiveness, Impact and Sustainability) _en.pdf Page 9 of 24

10 Entrepreneurial Skills Pass MONITORING OF PROJECT PROGRESS With regards to progress, monitoring will be a collaborative responsibility of the quality manager as appointed by FFE-YE as coordinator of the quality assurance work package, and of each work package leader and participating project partners. On an overall note, work package leaders will be responsible for ensuring that the agreed deadlines for submitting the deliverables for each work package are met and for sending in collected data in relation to quality assurance and evaluation purposes to the coordinator of WP4 Quality Assurance (FFE-YE). MONITORING METHODOLOGY AND DOCUMENTATION The monitoring will be undertaken via a number of instruments, which are described in the following. STEERING COMMITTEE MEETINGS AND CALLS Quality assurance is mandatory for all work packages. In case of issues or differences in opinions the quality manager will consult the steering committee which was approved by all participating organisations. The quality manager will make sure that all major deliverables will go through a Quality Review prior to its final submission in order to ensure that project deliverables are of high quality, professional standard, state-of-the-art and meeting the requirements set to each deliverable. The quality manager will make sure that the deliverable will be discussed and approved by the consortium at the monthly calls of the Steering Committee or face-to-face meetings depending on the timing. In case the delivered products match the required quality standards, the Steering Committee will approve the deliverable. In case the delivered products do not match the required quality standards the Steering Committee/quality manager will point out the discrepancies and ask the partner organisation responsible for the deliverable to adjust it according to the requirements. MANAGEMENT TEAM MEETINGS The quality manager will take part in the monthly management team meetings and make sure that any pertaining quality assurance issues are discussed at the meetings. These can be issues raised in the quality questions in the Internal Report Forms or in the online working environment. BI-ANNUAL ACTIVITY REPORTS Two annual activity reports about the project s progress and plans for the upcoming year will be produced by FFE-YE based on input from the project partners, as well as one final project report. They will be distributed to the EU, the Partners, the National Focus Groups, the selected schools and teachers and others as appropriate. PROJECT SELF-REVIEW - QUALITY QUESTIONS Quality questions have been integrated into the bi-annual Internal Report Forms to monitor the progress in work packages (appendix B). An electronic version of the internal report form will be sent out to all project partners by the quality manager. In the course of the project all operating partners have to check their work package progress on the base of the internal report form. As Page 10 of 24

11 Entrepreneurial Skills Pass such, the project partners must every six months fill in the report form and send it to the quality manager. INTERIM REPORTS FROM PROJECT PARTNERS To ensure the financial quality of the project, FEE-YE will twice a year collect interim reports from the partners and work with an external accountant. ONLINE WORKING ENVIRONMENT As part of the project management an online working environment is set up where the project partners can connect. This environment can be used to raise quality assurance issues to be discussed between project partners including the management team. Also, the management team can provide updates on quality assurance issues to the project partners, e.g. based on discussions in the monthly management team meetings and steering committee meetings. QUALITY ASSESSMENT CRITERIA Monitoring of project progress will have a particular attention on whether the project delivers the anticipated results and is being well-managed. Based on the documentation collected through the monitoring process as described above, the quality manager will check progress against the following quality assessment criteria as part of drafting the bi-annual activity reports. The filled-in checklist will form part of the bi-annual activity report. Table 4: Checklist for quality manager to assess if the project is EFFECTIVE and WELL MANAGED Quality assessment criteria Check The project remains relevant and feasible Yes No The project remains consistent with and supportive of current EU policy and Erasmus+ priorities The project strategy and objectives remain relevant to the needs of the target groups (students, VET schools, VET teachers, businesses) and ultimate beneficiaries Project objectives are being achieved Yes No Results are being delivered as planned, are of good quality and the project s target groups find them relevant to their needs The results being delivered are contributing effectively to the achievement of the project purpose The project is likely to contribute to the overall objective, and there is evidence that the project s ultimate beneficiaries will indeed benefit from the project The project is being well managed by those directly responsible for implementation Yes No Inputs are being provided on time and within budget Activities are being implemented on time Relevant information on project achievements/results is being collected and used, and is accessible to stakeholders in an appropriate format and language Operational plans and budgets are reviewed and updated on a regular basis and reflect lessons learned from experience Transparency and accountability systems (including financial management systems) are adequate and effective Decision based on quality assessment Page 11 of 24
