During the QA HiVETnet project several outputs were produced:
- National reports on quality assurance mechanisms for VET qualifications (EQF-levels 5 to 7) in the skilled crafts sector
On the basis of a common template five national reports on the quality assurance mechanisms for higher VET qualifications were compiled. These reports formed the basis for the cross-national comparison the results of which were considered in the QA guidelines.

- European Guidelines on Quality Assurance in Higher VET
The European QA Guidelines were produced on the basis of the national QA reports. They were tested in several events in order to get feedback for their improvement and make them known among relevant stakeholders. The Guidelines cover a definition of higher VET, the twelve quality features the partnership defined for higher VET, information on peer reviews for the implementation and improvement of QA mechanisms, as well as the ‘Declaration of Interest’ organisations have to fill in to join the European QA Network.

- European Network on Quality Assurance in Higher VET
The European QA Network should guarantee the sustainability and further development of the QA Guidelines and foster – in the long run – the development of a ‘Higher VET Area’, in which the Guidelines are used. Organisations willing to cooperate in this network have to fill in the ‘Declaration of Interest’ and send it to UEAPME, which coordinates the Network.
