Dear Reader!


The articles in this issue of DialogWeb focus on different aspects of quality in both formal and non-formal education.
This issue’s Finnish article describes quality assessment in a company that has received a quality award from the education authorities for its apprenticeship training programme.
The Icelandic article tells us about a relatively simple assessment tool for non-formal education which nevertheless manages to cover several different aspects of quality.
Another article describes how Swedish post-secondary vocational education and training programmes and their quality assessment systems are designed simultaneously. This month’s contribution from the Åland islands lists examples of how quality thinking – in terms of pedagogic support – can be incorporated into an Internet-based upper secondary education programme for adults who need both formal and actual competence for higher education.
