The first product of the project (Intellectual Outcome 1) is a theoretical model of Lesson Study for the special context of VET. The LS4VET model was developed through professional collaboration between the partners, based on comprehensive needs-analysis and data collection:
- survey of the prior and current application of the method of LS in VET and in general and specifically in the partner countries and by the partner organisations;
- comparative analysis of the special VET-specific national (VET system), organisational (VET school) and individual (teacher) level factors that might be relevant to the adaptation of LS to VET, based on interviews with teachers and leaders in the partner VET schools;
- survey of the needs of the teachers in the partner VET schools in relation with the application of LS in VET and education quality improvement.
