Teknikcollege in Sweden: Network of competence centers for quality standards in training

Teknikcollege is a network of competence centers setting quality standards for technical education in Sweden. Within the network of Teknikcollege companies cooperate with municipalities and providers of education (colleges, technical universities, secondary schools) to create and supervise technology-oriented courses at different levels, matching the skills needs of the industry.

Courses at Teknikcollege are quality-assured on the basis of ten criteria. A region may only carry the label “certified by Teknikcollege” if the 10 quality requirements are fulfilled.

Companies of a region play a key role in shaping the structure of the courses as well as designing their actual content. Together with municipalities, social partners and educational providers, they are active members in the regional steering groups initiated by the system of Teknikcollege.
