and Sustainable Development
Quality management and sustainable development are comprehensive,
all-round themes in all general and vocational education and training and hence
a vital part of the AEV education and training processes.
One of the central objectives in the development of the AEV operations
is to introduce both quality management and principles of digital and sustainable
development into the institution’s core functions and processes.
The AEV quality management is based on the European Quality Assurance in
vocational education and training, EQAVET.

Digital and sustainable development has been adopted as a part of
teaching and work at the AEV. One of the objectives of education and training
at the AEV is to increase students’ and staff abilities and motivation for digital
