TORINO PROCESS

The European Training Foundation works with partner countries bordering Europe to improve vocational education and training (VET) systems and outcomes. Progress, updates and results are tracked through the Torino Process: a participatory analysis involving many stakeholders.

This website is packed full of useful information, facts and figures, from the latest reports from 25 countries participating in the Torino Process.

In the Report Hub you can browse through country reports, summaries and key indicators. Here you will also find the Report Compilation Tool, which allows you to browse through and collate country results for specific questions. The Blog will take you to the stories behind the numbers.

ABOUT
THE TORINO
PROCESS

WHAT IS THE TORINO PROCESS?

Every two years, the European Training Foundation (ETF) invites its partner countries to analyse progress in their vocational education and training (VET) policies and systems. Inspired by the EU Copenhagen Process, the Torino Process is based on country ownership of the process, broad and open participation, a holistic approach to policy and systems analysis, and evidence-based assessment.

WHAT IS IT FOR?

1/5

Participating countries develop a common understanding of their medium-term vision, priorities, and strategy for impact-oriented VET policy development.

2/5

They are able to explore possible options for implementing their vision.

3/5

Participants can also update the analyses at regular intervals to monitor and evaluate progress and impact.

4/5

The Torino Process provides tools and opportunities for capacity development and policy learning within and among partner countries and with the European Union (EU).

5/5

Countries are empowered to coordinate the contributions of donors more effectively, so as to achieve agreed national priorities.

WHAT CAN COUNTRIES
LEARN FROM IT?

The Torino Process provides access to up-to-date information about VET policies and results, identifies progress and backdrops in the system, and helps with shaping priorities for action. This contributes to more efficient and transparent policymaking processes and to setting a shared vision among actors for the future.

HOW IS IT DONE?

The Torino Process has three key phases. Beginning at the national level, stakeholders collaborate to collect evidence and analyse the national VET system and its results for the country reports, which are validated through a participatory approach. The next phase takes place at a regional level, where countries share common challenges and solutions. The cycle concludes at the international conference in Turin, where all countries come together to learn from each other and set future steps.

WHO TAKES PART?

The Torino Process involves a wide range of national and sub-national stakeholders – including government representatives, social partners, business, experts, VET providers and international organisations – working together to drive outcomes forward.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?

Common vision, priorities and strategies for a more efficient policy cycle based on evidence, cooperation and dialogue. This all helps countries to build an effective VET system.
