Abstract: The study provides an overview of indicators about the quality of vocational education and training (VET), and outlines basic determinants of a comprehensive system of quality indicators. It considers the systemic as well as the institutional level and takes both a topdown (international frameworks of indicators) and a bottom-up perspective (practice in selected EU member countries). The analysis is based on a detailed framework, comprising the different stages of implementation (input-process-output-outcome and context) and the three European policy priorities (employability - matching of supply and demand - accessibility). Specific performance dimensions specify the priorities (competences - structural employment dimensions - target groups). A distinction is made between indicators to assess the quality of policy making and indicators to assess the quality of provision. There are several comparative indicators related to the policy priorities. However, they don't sufficiently cover the key aspects of performance derived from European policy documents.;
