The VETWORK consortium has developed an on-line benchmarking tool that allows self-assessment and measurement of integration effectiveness between VET and the world of work. The tool  helps VET providers to self-assess and to compare the extent and the concrete ways through which they collaborate with the world of work. The benchmarking tool  contains questions organised in four categories (Input, Processes, Output/Outcomes and Context) and allows a positioning of the VET provider in order to keep in mind the nature, size and context of each organisation and to propose comparisons with the most adequate benchmarking partners.

By simply replying to the questions posed by the benchmarking tool, especially if the exercise is conducted collectively by a working team including the main management positions,  the VET provider is stimulated to reflect on its performance as well as to recognise the weak areas that shall be addressed to enhance VET- Work integration. If the VET provider organisation decides to make its answers public, this contributes to the development of a database which allows to identify best performers in each criterion and indicator, and to propose inter-organisational project work and collaborative learning, locally as well as internationally.
